I am passionate about digital libraries and archives, scholarly communication, and data management in academic libraries. I will graduate with a Master of Library Science (MLS) and Master of Information Science (MIS) with a specialization in digital libraries from the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing in May 2014. In June 2014, I will be starting as the Digital Curation Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I have cultivated a rich expanse of work experience while going to school full-time, building my competencies in the areas of digital collections, special collections and archives, data curation and scholarly communication, instruction, public speaking and project management. I have strived to take initiative in developing new services and workflows and to seek out leadership positions whenever possible. If there is anything I have discovered about myself during my graduate education, it is that I enjoy strategic planning, tackling challenges, and staying engaged with a multitude of projects.
