I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Washington. My research interests include information behavior in context, the Big6 information problem-solving process, library programs for children and youth, digital learning environments, and LIS education. My research focuses on effective information behaviors in the problem-solving process, and how children and youth learn these behaviors through library programming. I am particularly interested in the role of sociotechnical context in information problem-solving. I have been a teacher-librarian and a technology integration specialist in the K-12 public schools. My prior degrees include a Master’s degree in Deaf Education from Gallaudet University and a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Delaware.
My personal interests include sports, reading, bicycling, pinochle, and travel to sunny destinations.
