I’ve worked at Foley Library since 1998 and as the Distance Services Librarian since 2003. My primary clientele are graduate students in Gonzaga’s online and distance programs. My goal is to help all students find the best library resources for their research projects, to understand the value of quality information, and to feel comfortable asking a librarian for help.
