In summer 2017, you can find me working at the Skokie Campus Library and in many of our online classes. Hope to see you around!

I have a Master of Library and Informational Science from the University of Missouri, a Master of Adult Education from National Louis University, and a Master of Online Teaching certificate from UIS/ION. I have been at Oakton since 2005, previously working at the National Louis University Library and several corporate libraries. I love being at Oakton and working with all of our wonderful students, staff, administrators, and faculty.

For research help with assignments and papers, be sure to visit the Library--we are happy to help! I welcome comments about how the Library is serving you and any suggestions you might have for improvements or additional services.
