Blank Rome LLP
Director, Library & Research Services
Greater Philadelphia Area
I am an entrepreneurial law librarian and information scientist. I'm the Director of Library & Research Services at Blank Rome LLP, a Global 100 law firm, where I direct its competitive intelligence, innovation, knowledge management, legal research services, research technology, and collection development functions. I played the lead role in developing the firm’s competitive intelligence function, previously acting as Blank Rome’s first-ever Competitive Intelligence Manager.

I received my M.S. in Library and Information Science from Drexel University. I serve on advisory boards for LexisNexis and American Lawyer Media, and am a member of the American Association of Law Libraries, having formerly served as board director of its Philadelphia chapter. I'm also experienced in the areas of human resources, accounting, marketing, and information technology, having previously been the Vice President of Business Administration for a startup brokerage firm. Prior to that, I provided consulting services to small businesses and nonprofits.
