I’ve been a librarian for thirteen years, first at the University of Wyoming as a reference and fine arts librarian, and for the past eight years at Regis as Distance Services Librarian. In addition to a master’s in library and information science, I have a master’s degree in art history. I keep active in art history research, and I work with the Regis collection of New Mexican santos. A significant part of my job at Regis is library instruction, at the reference desk, in the classroom and increasingly, online.
In my spare time, I like to read and bake, and I am a Colorado Master Gardener. My particular gardening interest, born of living many years in an arid climate, is xeriscape.
I recently completed my Masters Degree in Library Science at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. Like Tom, my job includes on-site and virtual library instruction, reference work, and collection development responsibilities for the Catholic Studies, Jesuitica, and Religious Studies collections. I’m a native of Denver, CO and enjoy sailing, camping, hiking, cycling, snowshoeing and other outdoor activities. I am also a collector of vinyl records and I DJ the occasional house party. I am very excited about the use of social software in library and education settings. Each day, I find myself becoming more of a tech geek!
