She holds an MLS from Simmons College, where she was elected to the Beta Phi Mu Honor Society, and an MBA in marketing from the J. L. Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She is the author of Creating Your Library Brand. Her strategy and marketing proficiencies were developed over more than a decade spent in the consumer packaged goods industry as a marketing director at Quaker Oats and Dunkin' Donuts and as a brand manager at Kraft Foods in the Maxwell House Coffee Division.

"A handy, largely intuitive reference that, in focusing in on patrons as consumers, serves as both a stimulus for new paths and a methodology for canvassing one's own local community and patrons."
— Booklist

"A great read to help spur discussion and bring excitement to developing a different mindset about libraries. There are some great ideas that can be replicated for those willing to take a new approach to library thinking."
— VOYA

"The eleven chapters do more than just interview the people involved with their companies; the chapter headings invite us to explore what it actually means to delve into organizational thinking … This book is so easy and so simple only because it takes a complicated topic—how do I make my library better—and breaks the topic into easy-to-follow directions. The best part of the book is that the reader can refer to any chapter at any time and get some time-tested solutions to put into practice immediately."
— Catholic Library World
