Anne loves to dig – not only in her veggie garden, but also for information in the dark corners of engineering libraries, in well-illuminated sci-tech databases, and by chatting up people (i.e. conducting primary research). Professional engineers and architects who focus on figuring out why something blew up, fell apart, or fizzled on the launch pad benefit from Anne’s 10+ years experience in turning up the ridiculously hard to find, and thinking strategically about information needed to get to the root of a problem.
Following a first career in radio and audio production, Anne discovered the joys of being an independent info pro, and has previously contributed to AIIP on conference planning and various member services committees.
