I was born and raised in the Bronx,
in New York City. I moved to San Francisco in 1983. I have a B.A. in
History from Fordham University at Lincoln Center and a Masters in
Library and Information Studies from UC Berkeley.
I worked as a library assistant in a
variety of libraries: the New York Public Library, NYU, the USF Law
Library, and UC Berkeley’s Moffitt Library. I have been a librarian
here at Gleeson/Geschke since 1991. I worked as the Government
Documents Librarian, the Computer Searches Librarian, and since 1997 I
am the Coordinator of Library Instruction. In this capacity, I oversee
the Library’s various instruction efforts.
I am the librarians’ representative to the Policy Board of the USF Faculty Association. The Faculty Association is the union representing the full time faculty and librarians here at USF. We are members of the San Francisco Labor Council, the California Labor Federation, and the AFL-CIO.
