For nineteen years, I have been performing information literacy services, reference, instruction, supervision, collection management, and outreach. Currently, I serve as a reference, teaching, and outreach librarian at Stetson University. I supervised between 15-18 library assistants and help manage the library building as the Information Desk Librarian at Lynn University (Boca Raton).
I am a writer and content creator and have developed accessible, instructional and promotional content for public and academic libraries. In sixteen years at the Birmingham Public Library, I gained much experience working in a multi-location environment in a variety of capacities. I developed the ability to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with all levels of the organization. I served on the Public Relations Committee for twelve years with staff from across the entire system. I also served on the social media and Library 2.0 committee, a group dedicated to creating digital assets such as tutorials and videos for teaching, training, and promoting library resources and services. I built the Twitter account and helped with many integrated marketing campaigns, working closing with internal staff as well as outside partners throughout the city of Birmingham to promote the library’s services and to tell the library’s story.
I have been fortunate to lead the Friends of the Library; create programming; devellop strategic plans; manage outreach; and provide high-quality instruction, research, and reference.
