About Me

I am the Head of Patron Services (a.k.a., Circulation) at the Livingston Public Library.  I manage a department of 19 staff members and work with all library departments.  I help document policies, implement non-traditional items to circulate, such as mobile hotspots, and manage staff and daily library needs.  I am also present at outreach events and continue my passion of teaching and hosting library events.  I am also a member of the NJLA Executive Board.


My past experience was also supervisory, but focused more on library technologies. I was the Emerging Technologies Librarian and Systems Administrator for the Cherry Hill Public Library. Prior to Cherry Hill, I was the Technologies Librarian for Cape May County Public Library System. I was also a 2011 American Library Association Emerging Leader.
