I spent over ten years as reference librarian at some of the top academic, research, and public libraries in the United States where I sharpened and polished my research skills.  While in a corporate setting, I saw the need for knowledge and information workers in the business world and branched out on my own in 2012.  Since then I have helped clients with all kinds of research needs and learned so much along the way.  I've become an expert at analyzing large volumes of data and information and selecting what is most meaningful and topical to the project I'm currently working on.  I absolutely love the research process and discovering new things every day.
I'm seeking freelance, contract or project-based opportunities to work with people, companies and brands who need secondary research, insight and analysis to connect with their target marketplace.
Currently I live in Asheville, NC and in my spare time, I enjoy gardening, hiking, and fixing up my old house!
