I'm a writer and former academic science librarian with instructional experience and impeccable research skills. I've written knowledge base articles for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, tutorials for the University of Arkansas, and profiles of additive manufacturing experts for the American Society for Mechanical Engineers. I hold a master's degree in library science, a graduate certificate in geographic information systems (GIS), and a bachelor's degree in geography. I invite you to explore my CV.
