As Digital Curation Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I am responsible for management, implementation, and outreach for data curation services for university faculty, staff, and students, including leading the interdisciplinary group Research Data Services. In my role, I also manage UW’s institutional repository, MINDS@UW. My day-to-day experience keeps me busy strategizing about how to improve and build services, managing projects, teaching and presenting, troubleshooting, supervising a student worker, and learning constantly… all of which makes the digital generalist in me very happy!
During grad school I was a writer and managing editor for the library student-run blog Hack Library School. Currently I am the editor of the LITA blog. I graduated from the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing in 2014 with my Master of Library Science (MLS) and Master of Information Science (MIS).
In the past, I shared projects and wrote primarily about library stuff here on my blog; now, as a member of the 2015 Project Life creative team, I’m newly inspired to share my life outside work as well.
