Associate Director, Academic and Clinical Engagement, Taubman Health Sciences Library
I am the Associate Director for Academic and Clinical Engagement (ACE) at the Taubman Health Sciences Library (THL). I started in the library in 1997 at the Public Health Library and moved to Pfizer Global Research and Development where I worked with document management and adverse event reporting systems. I returned to the library in 2005 when I became THL's Bioinformationist and worked with the National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics. I grew and expanded the THL's Research and Informatics unit before moving to the Academic and Clinical Engagement unit. In ACE, we work to expand the library's curricular integration throughout the health sciences including the Schools of Dentistry, Kinesiology, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and the College of Pharmacy. We also seek to actively engage with the university's clinical providers whether it is through library-led learning opportunities around information management and information resources or specialized searching activities like systematic reviews. I have my Master's of Science in Information from the University of Michigan and my Bachelor's of Science in Biology from Stanford University.
