I have been a professional archivist for over 25 years. I worked as an image archivist at the NASA / Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, a museum archivist at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in Southampton, Ontario, and have been the head of the Archives & Special Collections department at the Brock University Library since 2006. I am also a member of the Academy of Certified Archivists and a Digital Archives Specialist through the Society of American Archivists.

As head of the Archives & Special Collections, I acquire new primary source records, assist in teaching, guide researchers in the discovery of historic documents, and ensure that these materials are preserved for generations to come.
