About Me

I am the electronic resources and web services librarian at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, NJ. I completed my Bachelor's degree in music with a concentration on vocal studies at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, my Master of Library and Information Science degree from The Catholic University of American in Washington D.C. and a Master of Science degree in information and communication technology with a specialty in web design & development from the University of Denver. 

My professional interests are library website usability, website design, web development, electronic resources and databases, and information literacy and student success. I've published articles about students use of keywords, and continue to find that drives my lesson planning for library instruction. As we're a small library staff at a community college, I find that I'm more a jack of all trades here. I also sit at the reference desk, clear paper jams, plug in network cables, and perform my professional library liaison responsibilites! Currently, I liaise with nursing & allied health, visual & performing arts, computer science, and communication & languages. 

I live in Clinton, NJ with my husband and two young children. We keep very busy running around doing stuff with the kids. In my free time, I enjoy CrossFit, reading, painting my nails, and spending time with my family.
