I am the embedded librarian for the College of Business. I began my career as the NBD Bank librarian, handling research projects from across the company, primarily in support of lending activities. After fifteen years, I transitioned to an embedded position within the Commercial Banking Education Department where I was charged with creating and delivering courses for bankers on business research tools and methodologies. Prior to arriving at Mardigian Library, I worked for a competitive intelligence firm and in that capacity, produced customized research on industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, personal goods, furniture, chemical, legal, chemical and food for Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies.
I hold an M.S. degree in Library Science and an M.A. in French, both from Wayne State University and a B.A. in French from Oakland University.
