Health Sciences Library Director
Information is a prescription for health--and as a medical librarian I assist physicians, nurses, and other caregivers to create a healing environment. I am the director of a large hospital library in Brooklyn, NY, where every day I improve patient care by delivering the latest and best health information to my clients. I have a science background--I was a chemist in the pharmaceutical industry before I became a librarian--but you do not need that to succeed as a medical librarian. What you do need is curiosity, drive, excellent customer service skills, and a passion for public health. Ask me anything!
Went to library school at University of California - Los Angeles
What I'm Reading: 
I love mystery novels and books about the Indian diaspora. Ian Rankin, Raymond Chandler, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni are some of my favorite authors.
