As the Manager of Research Services at Winthrop & Weinstine, I administer all aspects of the firm’s library and coordinate its information services. I am responsible for overseeing Research Services department staff, developing the firm’s collection of resources, strategic planning, budgeting, contract/subscription negotiation, equipment, and space utilization and design. I work with firm leadership, attorneys, and staff to ensure all firm personnel have access to the information resources, training, and in-depth legal research they need to excel at their jobs and provide the highest level of service to our clients. I earned my M.L.I.S. from St. Catherine University, my J.D. from the University of Minnesota, and my B.A. in English from the University of Missouri – Kansas City.
