As a consultant, I serve my clients in four ways—as an archival advisor, writer and researcher, instructor, and photo editor. To provide clarity to complex information-based problems, I offer the reference assistance of a librarian, the organizing expertise of an archivist, and the critical thinking skills and intellectual curiosity of a historian.
