My focus is on information access and organization with the goal of making it easy to find what you’re looking for. In addition to creating back-of-book indexes, I also have experience with metadata standards and taxonomies.

I want to help people find what they’re looking for and I want to help clients make sure their work can be found.

I have a Master of Library and Information Science degree from Kent State University where I focused on metadata and taxonomy work and have completed the UC Berkeley course in indexing. My background includes undergraduate degrees in biology and environmental engineering. I have worked with elementary age students in STEM programs, homeschooling, and as a library assistant.

I am open to a wide variety of texts. I especially enjoy work within the sciences, especially nature, the environment, and biology. I also enjoy work with a focus on children, parenting, folklore & mythologies, and body/mind/spirit.
