I work in the Information Security, Policy and Records Office (ISPRO) at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. ISPRO, in its security coordination role, focuses on the continuous enhancement of the security of the University of Virginia's diverse and decentralized computing environment. It works in partnership with units and individuals across the University. In its policy role, the office works with advisory committees, legal counsel, and others to develop, implement, and keep current a comprehensive set of policies governing the University's information technology resources. It provides ongoing policy interpretation, education, and advice to the University community, and it works with various University units and law enforcement to effectively address policy or law violations. As legislative advisor to the UVa State Governmental Relations Office, the office provides assessments, advice, and general information on proposed legislation regarding information technology issues.

I received my BA with high honors in Psychology and Religion from the University of Virginia, as well as a Masters and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University (major in community psychology and minor in quantitative methods).

Prior to joining the Information Security, Policy and Records Office (ISPRO) in June 2008, I managed ITC's Research Computing Support group for 10 years and was one of the three principals in the creation of the Scholars' Lab in Alderman Library and the Research Computing Lab in the Charles A. Brown Science and Engineering Library in Clark Hall.

I am a 2005 Frye Leadership Institute Fellow.

My office is located in Room 156 at 2400 Old Ivy Road, Charlottesville, VA. Visitor parking is convenient and readily available, so stop by and visit.
