About me

I’ve been with JMU Libraries since 2007 and have held managerial roles across several areas with the common themes of stewarding resources and providing customer service.  As Head of Access & Delivery I oversee a team that supports Delivery Services, Stacks Maintenance, as well as circulation and patron related aspects of our Library Services Platform.

We help JMU patrons and other Libraries’ departments by delivering library materials to on-campus locations and maintaining the condition of the Libraries’ physical collections through shelving, tidying up, and relocating collections. We also help with the systems and software that support borrowing library materials and managing patrons’ library accounts.
