My position in the Library is in web and technical services. My responsibilities include library website content management, electronic resources management, and library statistics. I get very "jazzed up" when making connections between people and information.
My background is in video production, web page development, library and media services, instructional technology, and print shop administration. In a previous life, I completed my Bachelors degree from the University of Alberta. A few years later, I took a position as a graduate research assistant working on a Masters degree in Physiology at the University of Louisville (School of Medicine). During this time, I played professional women's racquetball and was sponsored by AMF Head. Just before graduation, family matters required a move closer to my roots in Canada. With car, dogs, and tent in tow, I set out on the Oregon trail and ended up in Portland. I vividly remember the moment I first set foot on a PCC campus. I told a friend that "one day I will work here because my Spirit has found its home". So it was and so it is!
I love to hike, play my guitar and sing, fly stunt kites at the beach, kayak, ride Honda Gold-Wing motorcycles, do calligraphy projects and snowshoe with other "Canucks". I often watch reruns of Star Trek or read science fiction into early morning hours with my cat curled up in my lap. At days end, I sit quietly and write in my journal.
