Physical Sciences Librarian
(574) 631-4549 | | 143 Hesburgh Library

I have been at Notre Dame since 1992 and consider myself to be creative, innovative and customer focused.

My undergraduate degree was in Mathematics and my graduate degree was in Information Science. Both degrees were from the University of Washington in Seattle.

I teach CHEM 23201 (How to find and present chemical information) every fall semester to sophomore majors.

My interests include using data to provide better customer service and academic genealogies. Personally, I enjoy any aspect of maps, from the extra miler club to the sport of orienteering to making maps.
