A short bio
Born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Rochelle received a B.A. (Hons) from Carleton University in Ottawa in English and History, and then a Master of Theological Studies at Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She began a Ph.D in History at the University of Toronto, but decided her heart was in public service, not strictly in research. She received an M.L.I.S. from the University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario (now called Western University).
Her first professional home was at the University of Toronto Mississauga as an Instructional Technology Liaison Librarian, and then as Emerging Technologies Librarian. After nearly a decade, she moved south to Rochester, NY and filled the role of Coordinator of the Digital Academy at the University of Rochester's River Campus Libraries.
Rochelle is currently Assistant Dean, Academic Engagement at River Campus Libraries, University of Rochester.
