In 1998 I received my BA in History from the University of South Florida. After a few years spent as a substitute teacher and retail music store clerk, I decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I received my MLS in 2001 while also working as a graduate assistant at the University of South Florida Tampa Campus Library.
I took my first professional job as an Assistant Librarian at Louisiana State University Troy H. Middleton Library in January of 2002. In October of 2003 I started working as an Instructor Librarian at the University of Central Florida Libraries.
I am currently the Interim Department Head of the Curriculum Materials Center (CMC) at the UCF Libraries. The CMC houses approximately 27,000 volumes, and is dedicated to meeting the needs of UCF Education majors and Central Florida Education professionals. As the Interim Department Head, I oversee the day-to-day operations of the CMC, supervise three Sr. LTAs and 6 student assistants, and engage in outreach to the College of Education faculty.
In January of 2011, I successfully defended my dissertation titled "In the Process of Becoming: The Organizational Culture of the Metropolitan Academic Library," and was awarded my Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, Higher Education Policy Studies from the University of Central Florida. My full dissertation is available here.
