Working directly with archives and special collections is a passion of mine. After completing my master’s in library and information science, I held a series of project archivist opportunities in Italy and the Washington D.C. area helping repositories select and implement collection management systems. In doing so, I saw firsthand how the archival community can leverage technology to do more -- to speed processing, enhance discoverability and facilitate new access points.
Thanks to positions with SAGE Publishing focused on metadata and discovery services, I was introduced to Adam Matthew Digital and in December 2018 was given the opportunity to have a much greater impact than working with a single institution. As the Quartex product specialist I am embedded in the product management/development department, working in support of our North American sales team to provide live demonstrations and speak to specific functionality and development.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and listening to country music on a long road trips with the windows down.
