I am a librarian, web developer, content strategist, and educator from Orange County, California. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Masters of Library & Information Science. My research specializations include the social web, digitization, genealogy, history, and public records. My web specializations include database development, information architecture, content strategy, and social media integration. I am currently employed as the Systems Librarian at Cal State Fullerton.
Outside of work, I can usually be found hiking Southern California, cooking and sampling good food, doing something crafty (especially quilting!), or digging into family history. I am a wife, mom, dog lover, and Christian.
