I attended Dominican University in River Forest, IL, to obtain my Masters degree in Library and Information Science and graduated January 2010.  I was the board secretary for the Special Libraries Association Competitive Intelligence Division from 2007-2010 and earned a dual certificate in Competitive Intelligence and the Intelligence Information Function from the Special Libraries Association in November 2007.  I completed courses in Change Management and Knowledge Management/Knowledge Services at the Special Libraries Association annual conference in July 2012.

I received my B.A. from the University of Iowa in Anthropology with a Minor in Religion. I also spent a semester abroad studying Irish Literature at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, and participated in a writers’ workshop.

I possess a clear understanding of current trends and new technologies for overcoming information overload. Utilizing SharePoint and other information tools, I instruct users on how to gather and analyze information efficiently and effectively.
