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.

I facilitate the understanding of the importance of historical collections, suggesting ways to manage them and use them to tell stories to connect with people. With each project, I keep the client’s needs in mind and offer practical and sustainable solutions to their problems.
