As Director of Libraries at Denison University, I provide strategic vision for the library and collaborate with faculty and administrators to transform scholarship and teaching. Previously, I was Director of the High Library at Elizabethtown College, near Hershey, PA. I have been a librarian at Wellesley College, Harvard College, Rutgers University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Barnard College. Having also worked in publishing, I have extensive editorial experience. My curiosity compels me to look at challenges that cut across traditional organizational boundaries. I am always broadening my interests and vision, and am currently intrigued by the way we construct mental models as we learn and by the use of metaphor. I believe everyone should snorkel more, dust less, and eat as many chocolate chip cookies as they want to.
