I'm a dynamic executive with over 30 years of library experience. I hold both a Master of Library Science and an Executive Master of Business Administration. I began working in libraries at 18. I've been a shelver, reference librarian, library manager, and library director. I've worked in libraries in New York, Florida, Colorado. Oregon, and California. These experiences provide me with a background in budget development, strategic planning, organizational development, fundraising, facilities planning, and leadership development.
As a consultant, my passion is to partner with organizations to help them optimize the value they bring to their customers and communities. My professional experience, business background, and expansive peer network provide me with insight and tools that help me collaborate with clients to maximize performance and generate quality results. I understand that successful projects depend on significant engagement with the client, staff, stakeholders, and the community.
