Hello, I’m the Business Librarian here at California State University Monterey Bay. I started at CSUMB on August 1, 2018. But, I’ve been working in libraries for a long time; I got my Master’s Degree in Library Science back in 1993. Pre-Google.

In my early days I worked as a reference and instruction librarian at community colleges in Oregon and Washington State including Chemeketa Community College, Everett Community College, and Peninsula College.

More recently, I worked as a business librarian at university libraries. From 2008 to 2013, I was the Business Librarian at the University of Maine. Nice work, but lots of snow. And cold. I also worked at Portland State University from 2015 to 2016, where I filled in for the usual business librarian while she was on a one-year sabbatical. I also started and operated a small business (information brokerage) from 2005 to 2007. Here’s my archived business website.

I’m interested in resources related to private and public businesses, industries, and markets. An important part of my job here is helping people. So, if you need help with any type of business research, email or give me a call. I’d be happy to speak with you.
