I am a research librarian at an intellectual property-focused law firm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since March 2006, I have been the Government Relations Chair for the SFBay Region chapter of the Special Libraries Association. I am also currently on the association's Public Policy Advisory Council (2009-2011). Since January 2003, my husband and I have spent our Sunday mornings volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation hospital. We are also on the raccoon foster care team and usually have orphaned raccoons in an enclosure in our yard from June to October every year. I also help my husband with lights for a local community theatre group for 3 to 5 shows per year. I used to act in these shows until my commute tripled a few years ago. I have very little free time.
