On this site you can read about my professional background.
I am an information professional with subject matter expertise in knowledge management, usability, content strategy and management, intranets and web technology.
Using the Internet for research and collaboration since 1995 provides me with an expert view on information reliability and advanced searching techniques. I am a savvy web surfer and I keep abreast of new developments by reading trade publications, websites, whitepapers, and blogs by industry experts.
- Participating in professional communities is crucial to me and I have been actively volunteering since I was a student. I am the SLA NY Chapter past-president (2010), executive board member and website redesign committee member. I regularly attend programs, networking events and planning meetings. At the international SLA level, I am the blog coordinator for the Leadership & Management Division. I also have participated in the SLA scholarship committee as well as a nominating committee.
- My library and information science coursework at Pratt Institute included cataloging, information architecture, XML, legal research, business sources, government information, records management and reference.
