I am a wonder seeker, a fighting optimist, and a perpetual learner. I'm an administrator, a librarian, a researcher, a teacher, and a consultant. I find hope and purpose in the collective and richness at life's intersections. My leadership values and my daily ways of being are influenced and enriched by the natural world.
In my day job, I'm the Associate Dean for Research & Learning in the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I work with information experts, researchers, teachers, students, and other change-makers to use and develop information and systems to advance knowledge and to create and sustain better futures.

I'm a paddleboarding enthusiast, and I delight in creating pencil rubbings. An amateur baker, I like to eat the seasons in desserts. I dream of retiring to the Central Valley of Costa Rica.
