Reference Librarian

I have spent most of my professional career with the Smithsonian Libraries, in various roles and duties.  Currently I am the Vertebrate Zoology librarian, overseeing the Birds, Fishes, Mammals and Reptiles divisional libraries, as well as performing reference duties for the main Natural History Library.

Interests:  Group fitness classes, dance, international and local travel when I can, following my favorite professional sports teams, and being at home with my husband and two cats.
