I've had the opportunity to manage projects and operations in library/information technology. I'm intensely interested in and engaged with project management, particularly in the technology space.
I currently serve as a Program Manager (Systems Program) for the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a regional academic library consortium in the Pacific Northwest. From July 2013 to mid-2015, I served as the Alliance-side project manager for the migration of 31 institutions to shared management and discovery services using Ex Libris Alma and Primo. I previously worked in library systems and technology positions at Washington State University, the National Library of Medicine, and at Texas A&M University.
I am a certified Project Management Professional. I attended college at Texas A&M University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1989. I earned a Master of Library and Information Science degree from Louisiana State University in 1992. Prior to my undergraduate education, I served for six years in the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, qualifying as an operator on the S1W (Nautilus prototype) and A2W (Enterprise shipboard) reactor plants.
