Development & Philanthropy Librarian, Professor
I provide leadership and oversight for philanthropic activities for JMU Libraries and work to help tell the story of the Libraries. I work with JMU Alumni Relations, Events, Advancement, and the JMU Foundation to identify opportunities for collaboration.
I have a B.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University in Art History and an M.L.I.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
I have been a librarian at JMU since 2001. I have also worked as a law librarian and in a public library system.
About Communications & Outreach
We lead communications, marketing, and outreach on behalf of JMU Libraries. Our communications reach a variety of audiences, including current and prospective students, faculty, staff, donors, alumni, JMU parents and families, and the local community.
The Communications & Outreach team manages promotion, media relations, messaging, and branding for the Libraries. We collaborate with University Communications, University Marketing & Branding, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office of Admissions. We also partner with various units within University Advancement to coordinate the Libraries’ participation in fundraising.
