Facilitation and Training

Here’s a few of the workshops and events I have designed and facilitated:

Over a three-year period, participants of my workshops included library professionals from Chicago Public Library, Los Angeles Public Library, Toronto Public Library, Boston Public Library, and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
