About me . . .
I am a Reference Librarian and have been employed at Truman State University since September, 1999.
I teach LIB 111, Use of Information Resources, which is a one-credit course that meets during the second block of the Fall and Spring semesters. The class meets in the library classroom (Room 103) Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30-11:20 a.m.
I am the instruction liaison for various disciplines including Anthropology & Sociology, Justice Systems, Music, Philosophy & Religion, Psychology, Theatre, and Women's Studies. I am also collection development librarian for all of the above disciplines except Music and Theatre.
I graduated from Truman State University in 1983 (then Northeast Missouri State University) with a major in Sociology and minors in Psychology and Music. I received a Master of Arts degree in Sociology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1994. In 1998, I received a Master's degree in Library Science & Learning Technologies, also from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I have worked at Pickler Memorial Library as a Reference and Instruction Librarian since 1999. I am originally from Chicago. Other interests: piano, choral singing, volunteer work, listening to live blues music, reading, movies, and travel.
