Meet Dena

I manage the Institute’s library, archives, and telecommunications system and help my department of Information Systems and Services. I love doing online research and playing detective when it comes to our staff’s information needs.

I’ve been proud to be part of transitioning our library and archives databases to a state-of-the-art integrated library system, and working on our legacy committee to digitize Institute archives.

I grew up down the street from the Institute on a hobby farm. I was always curious about this place and began working at Fetzer as an intern through Kalamazoo Valley Community College in the summer of 1990.
