Phone: (415) 422-5389

When it says, "Chat with the Business Librarian" I'm available via Instant Message! 

Office hours Spring 2015:

By appointment

Give me a call or email me if you need help any time, or to make an appointment!

No matter where you are, I can help you via phone, email, or virtually! That means that you can meet with me from anywhere, even if you never come to the Hilltop Campus.


If I need to find you in the library, how do I do that? Where is GL (Gleeson)100? Just go to the Reference Desk in the library, and ask. They will show you where my office is.

What do you mean, "meet virtually?" We can meet online, share our computer screens and talk to one another, from anywhere!

Primary Liaison Areas:

Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Hospitality Management, International Business, Marketing, Executive MBA, MBA, jMGEM (Joint Master of Global Entrepreneurship Management)

About Me:
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I have a BA in Behavioral Science from Drew University, a Master of Arts in Teaching, Elementary Education from Monmouth University, and a Master of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. 

I've been in my current position at USF since 2003, but began my association with Gleeson Library/Geschke Center in 1995 working in the Catalog Department. I've also worked in the Periodicals Department at Gleeson. Other positions I've held outside of USF include Temporary Catalog Librarian for the Alameda County Library system in Fremont, Assistant Librarian at Schools of the Sacred Heart in San Francisco, and Fourth Grade Teacher at the now defunct St. Emydius School in San Francisco.   

Professional Interests:
Helping the students, staff, and faculty at the School of Management, as well as all of the great people in the USF community. Embedded librarianship, mentoring, library instruction, outreach, and faculty-librarian collaborations.
