About Me

I've been the librarian for numeric data in the University Libraries since December 2008, and took on responsibility for data management in 2012.  I worked previously as the Demographics Specialist at the State Library of North Carolina (2000 to 2005), and as the Data Services Librarian in the North Carolina State University Libraries (2005 to 2008).  I earned my BA with honors from Earlham College, and MSLS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
