I have been a librarian at the University of Michigan since August of 1985. I have worked in a number of areas over the years and feel privileged to be affiliated with this institution.

What I Am Reading Now

Covering: the hidden assault on our civil rights. by Kenji Yoshino.



My education includes master's degrees in Library Science (UM, 1985) and Sociology (UM, 1983) with a special interest in social psychology. My undergraduate degree was in East Asian Studies (Princeton, 1979).


I am involved in program planning, recruitment and retention, and assessment activities related to diversity and staff development within the University Library. I serve on the Library Diversity Council (ex officio), the MLK Day Planning Committee (chair), and other Library organizations as well as the University Diversity Council and the Central Human Resources Advisory Group.
