Hi everyone! I am the Archivist and Special Collections Librarian at Elon University, located in Elon, North Carolina. I have been a member of the RMRT Steering Committee since 2011. While records management is not the focus of my job, I am working with the Archives Librarian to develop a records management program for our campus. Such program has never existed on campus before, so we spend a lot of time not only educating ourselves, but others on campus about the importance of saving records that document the day-to-day operations of the university. It is both challenging and rewarding!
Prior to working at Elon, I was the Archives Assistant at the Greensboro Historical Museum. I received my MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and am a Certified Archivist. I am training for a triathlon in September, so my spare time is taken up with training for that event–which I am excited about!
I won’t be able to attend SAA this year–but hope to attend next year. Look forward to meeting more folks involved with records management.
