Education and Experience

M.L.I.S. Masters in Library and Information Science, Rutgers University
B.S. Mechanical Engineering, Iowa State University

I joined NJIT in 2018 as the Science and Engineering Librarian at the Robert W. Van Houten Library.  Prior to joining NJIT, I spent five years working in reference service and technology instruction at a public library.  Prior to that, I worked as a mechanical engineer for 10 years in the power plant industry at Foster Wheeler, Inc. in Clinton, NJ, Sargent & Lundy, LLC in Chicago, IL, and Muscatine Power & Water in Muscatine, IA.  I look forward to merging my engineering and library experience as a subject liaison at NJIT to provide research instruction and reference service for faculty and students.
