Records and Archives Professional with expertise in developing recordkeeping frameworks for managing and preserving collections with significant legal, cultural and historical value. I bring a creative and collaborative approach to every situation. I have worked with international organizations, academic institutions, government agencies and individuals.

As an educator, I teach courses at the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia (Canada) on managing and preserving archives and collections in various institutional and organizational settings; community engagement and outreach services; and emerging technologies for cultural heritage collections management and preservation.

As a scholar, I present and publish on the topic of digital archives, social media collections and cloud computing contracts. My dissertation, The Archival Trustworthiness of Digital Photography in Social Media Platforms (2016) reflects my interests in contemporary communications and the long-term implications.

As an archivist, I have worked with the UN Climate Change secretariat to create “The UNFCCC Story” and launch the Richard Kinley Gallery in Bonn, Germany (2017); the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum to develop their Digital Initiative Report (2011); and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia to lead their digitization program (2006-11).
