I have been the Processing Archivist for The Shubert Archive since June 2015. A proud Bronx native, I have worked at a variety of archives and libraries, including the University of Washington in Seattle. Other past positions include: the New York Public Library, King County Archives, and Fales Library, New York University. I received a B.A. with a double major in Art History and English, as well as an M.A. in English from Hunter College, City University of New York and an M.L.I.S. from the Palmer School of Library & Information Science, Long Island University. I am a Certified Archivist.

I also am a past co-chair of the Women's Collections Section and have served on the Steering Committee of the Manuscript Repositories Section.

I have been active with other professional and scholarly organizations too numerous to mention. Most recently, I have been presenting on research related to The Shubert Archive's Early Employees Project at various conferences, including Song, Stage and Screen XIV at the University of Leeds last month.
