Work Experience

Work Experience
Center for Victim Research, National Center for Victims of Crime, Research Librarian
2017 - 2019
I provide research help to a virtual network of victim services professionals. I am experienced in using email, chat, and phone to provide assistance and guidance on using academic databases.
Council on Foreign Relations, Associate Director, Research, Instruction, and Digital Resources
2009 - 2017
I was promoted several times in this library, to develop and lead our training program for help research associates and staff find the research and statistics they needed for books and articles they were writing. I provided research assistance, in person and remote using email, phone, and chat.
Colorado State University, Writing Consultant
2007 - 2009
I met with students one-on-one to discuss their writing assignments and review up to 5 pages of writing together; I followed the "rhetorical hierarchy of concerns" when providing assistance, looking first at the big picture of addressing the audience with a specific purpose and addressing style, grammar, and spelling last.
