Head of Reference and Lecturer in Legal Research
Room 313 (L3)

I've been a reference librarian at YLS since 2011. Before making it big in the law library business, I held a number of positions, including: Research Services manager at a DC law firm, advocate for people with disabilities in New Hampshire, house painter on Martha's Vineyard, organic farm intern, school painter, warehouse-worker (picker and truck-loader), bus boy, and paper boy.

In my current position, I manage the Research Services Department while providing research help and instruction to YLS students, faculty, and staff. Like my colleagues, I'm happy to take a shot at just about any research question you might encounter while at YLS. So please don't hesitate to ask. I'm also particularly interested in legislative history, regulatory research, disability law and environmental law.
