As a public library consultant who has created positive results for over 25 clients in six states, I'm passionate about libraries. Over the last two decades, I’ve worn many hats in library land: library director, community advocate, marketer, program developer, fundraiser and president of the Oregon Library Association as well as the largest library Friends organization in Oregon.
I find great joy in making libraries the very best they can be. As a consultant with a diverse and distinctive background, I collaborate with other librarians and library supporters to make their libraries thrive—whether that means improving services or facilities, increasing visibility, manifesting political support, improving services—or any combination of the above.
I know that libraries change lives—and I also believe that public libraries have a bright future. On this website, you’ll find information about how I can help you increase your library’s effectiveness and engagement with your community. Thank you for stopping by!
