I was born in Fairfield, CA and spent several years in Utah and in the Philippines.
I have a B.A. in English from the University of California at Davis,
and a Master of Library and Information Studies from the University of
California at Berkeley.
I began working as a Circulation
Assistant at Gleeson Library in 1991, and joined the Reference
department in 1998. I began as Head of Reference and Research Services in 2011.
I have a strong interest in the writer Joyce Carol Oates and maintain both a comprehensive web site—Celestial Timepiece: the Joyce Carol Oates Home Page—and a scholarly journal—Bearing Witness: Joyce Carol Oates Studies—on the topic.
