I am the Public Programming Librarian at Princeton Public Library which means that I oversee the 1,500+ programs planned annually by the library’s 15 member cross-departmental programming team. In 2007 I was chosen by Library Journal as a “Mover and Shaker” for my work in developing Princeton’s technology training program and for the founding of Tuesday Technology Talks in 1999. I serve on the executive board of ALA’s LEARNING Round Table and am active on several other ALA committees. I am proud Canadian and a graduate of GSLIS at The University of Western Ontario, but have lived in NJ for the last 10 years where I have been involved with NJLA and was appointed by the state librarian to serve on the Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Future of Libraries in New Jersey. During the last 10 years have given over 100 presentations to librarians at the local, state and national level on a variety of topics ranging from Social Software to Newspaper Indexing. In my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking, skiing and spending time with my son and husband.
