I am excited to be the newest reference librarian at the Charlotte School of Law and look forward to promoting the studies and scholarship of the students and faculty. Research can be fun, encouraging and, most importantly, painless – very similar to a safe, effective workout.
How did I get interested in law and arrive at the Charlotte School of Law? Well, it was simple – I followed a very crooked path and pedaled a lot of miles to get here. I started my career in Los Angeles working in film production and development as a story editor. Stories and films fanned the flame of my interest in artists and creativity which vaulted into the area of their legal concerns, specifically trademark and copyright law. In addition to my legal studies, I continued my education in human kinesiology as an ACE-certified personal trainer and added library science to the mix. Creativity, curiosity, and customer service have always been and will continue to be the common themes of my professional development.
So what can I do for you? Having just graduated from North Carolina Central University School of Law with a JD/MLS and finished the journey many of you are taking, I can help fend-off common mistakes in your research strategy, exam study, or bar preparation. So please stop by my office with any questions, be it research or assignment-related or about your health and fitness concerns. Or stop by just to introduce yourselves – I would love to share favorite films or books, externship war stories, or anything else you might want to discuss.
