Business/Social Sciences Librarian

Aloha. I am a reference librarian with more than 30 years of professional experience in academic libraries in the United States and Japan. I currently serve as UH Mānoa Library's liaison and subject selector for all instructional departments and schools in the Shidler College of Business and for the Department of Economics in the College of Social Sciences. 

I earned my business degree at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and master's degrees from Indiana University and the University of Hawaiʻi.

My professional career started at Indiana University where I served as Technical Services Coordinator for the 12 Halls of Residence Libraries (HRL) and later as Visiting Assistant Librarian for Undergraduate Collections and HRL Coordinator. Subsequent positions included my appointment as Director of the Library at Huron International University in Tokyo, Japan and briefly as the Interim Head of the Asia Collection in UH Mānoa's Hamilton Library. 

I have served in several leadership appointments with national and regional professional associations, including multiple times as chair of the Business Reference Sources Committee in the American Library Association. I am published in Library and Information Science Research, Journal of Business & Finance Librarianship, and Reference & User Services Quarterly.

I am a current member of the Senate Executive Committee (SEC) for the Mānoa Faculty Senate and serve as SEC liaison to the Committee on Faculty Service and the Committee on Professional Matters. I am also a current member of the Library Senate Executive Board.
