About me

I am an Informationist at the Taubman Health Sciences Library, University of Michigan–Ann Arbor. I partner with the faculty and staff of several clinical departments of Michigan Medicine to best address information needs related to their clinical, research, and academic missions, including General Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Family Medicine, Cardiovascular Medicine, and Rheumatology. I also serve as an instructor for the University of Michigan Medical School and School of Kinesiology, specializing in evidence-based practice, clinical information needs, and advanced searching.

I have extensive experience with systematic reviews and related review methodologies, and frequently partner with research teams on their projects that require systematic, comprehensive, and replicable literature searches and information retrieval.

I arrived at Taubman Medical Library in the fall of 2007 from Ohio University, where I served as Electronic Access Librarian, provided liaison services to the Biological Sciences Department and the School of Recreation & Sports Sciences, and provided reference services to the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
