I am the library liaison for the undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and serve as a member of the Wiggins Library instruction team. I am a founding member of Business Librarianship in North Carolina (BLINC) a community of public, academic, and special librarians who focus on how libraries support community engagement, economic development, entrepreneurship, small business, nonprofits, and business education. BLINC is a section of the North Carolina Library Association.
I earned my BA and MSLIS degrees from The University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK) and worked as a Program Director for the UTK Office of Research Administration and various regional economic development activities headquartered in the Southeast prior to joining Campbell University in 1999.
My interest in rural economic development led me to participation in the Social Entrepreneurship Program of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation. I became Campbell’s first Sullivan Foundation Faculty Fellow in 2015, and have served as Campbell’s Sullivan Foundation Liaison since 2018.
I invite students and faculty to join me in further developing Campbell’s relationship with the Foundation and the Sullivan Network of over 70 Colleges and Universities across the American South!
