The bulk of my career has been spent managing small, private academic repositories and performing a variety of duties, such as archival literacy instruction, grant proposal writing, cultivating donor relations, records management, archives administration, collection development, cataloging, and team management. I am an "ideas person" who loves conceptualizing ways to creatively solve problems. My professional mission is to tell meaningful stories about archival materials and its value.
I live in Central Ohio with my husband, two children, two dogs, and a ferret. I am the University Archivist and Special Collections Librarian at Denison University. I have a B.A. in History from Capital University and an M.L.I.S. from Kent State University's School of Library and Information Science. While not at work, I enjoy knitting and playing video games.
