This is a relatively new position for UAL, subsequent to the consolidation of the University of Arizona Health Sciences Library (UAHSL) with the University of Arizona (UA) University Libraries. As Associate Dean for Health Sciences, I am the Director of the UAHSL. In my role as Associate Dean for Strategic Planning, I am responsible for coordinating strategic planning and, related, assessment efforts across the entire UAL system. I am also responsible coordinating diversity and inclusion efforts at UAL.
I have over 30 years of experience as a health sciences librarian and have been active in the Medical Library Association, having served as President (2011-2012). Academic interests include leadership and administration, informatics, evidence-based practice, and diversity and inclusion. Personal interests include baseball, hockey, bicycling, hiking, cooking, and music (all sorts).
