Bio

I am a degreed librarian with extensive experience in providing information services to and curating information for pollution prevention technical assistance engineers and environmental scientists. From 2012-2019, I served as Executive Director of the Great Lakes Regional Pollution Prevention Roundtable, a U.S. EPA-funded pollution prevention information center, where I developed information products for and facilitated networking and information sharing among pollution prevention technical assistance providers in the Great Lakes states. I also advised other centers in EPA’s P2Rx National Network on new ways to organize, gather, and share information. I founded and author the Environmental News Bits blog, have taught workshops on sustainability planning for businesses and organizations, and have published on the topic of sustainability in libraries. I hold a B.A. in History and M.S. in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
