A full-time information professional (she’s the senior knowledge analyst for PepsiCo), part-time instructor (she teaches business research at the University of North Texas), and tireless volunteer (she’s president of the Information & Research Management Council of the Conference Board and a member of several SLA units), Denise is perpetually in librarian mode. She jokes that she “can’t seem to say no” to requests to serve her profession, but she really sees them as learning opportunities—and learning is something she doesn’t joke about.

“The main thing is that you’re always learning,” she told Information Outlook. “It never stops. Just because you’ve been in a job a long time, if you’re not constantly learning, you’re not staying ahead of the game. You’re going to be left behind, and more than likely you’re going to be one of those people who gets laid off when the economy turns down.”
