I’m a librarian at the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College in New York. I received my Library Science and Archival Masters degrees from Pratt Institute and a Masters in Anthropology from Hunter College.
Previously, I worked in Butler Library at Columbia University and the Thomas J. Watson/Nolen Libraries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art as a librarian for 5 years. While at the Met, I had the wonderful opportunity to work in a number of units including reference, special collections cataloging and inter-library loans. My current research interests include Gender, Women Studies, and Ethnomusicology, specifically women’s participation in Heavy Metal and Extreme Metal Music sub-cultures. My all-time favorite books are the illustrated kind-graphic novels and comics! To be specific, I love almost everything published under the Vertigo label and I have a sentimental affinity to Preacher by Garth Ennis.
When I’m not shushing folks at the library, I split my time as a metal scholar, mentor, wife, mom, and doting sister when NY temperatures and attitudes allow.
