Ms. Starkey has over 12 years of experience managing information and records, focused on the organization of information, including digital initiatives regarding information access, organization, and usability.  At PAI Consulting, she uses this experience to support PAI’s Government and industry clients as a Digital Librarian.  Ms. Starkey creates Microsoft Access databases in support of work PAI undertakes for its clients, including studies and comment analysis.  She also created a consolidated database and managed a team of analysts reviewing entries from disparate databases under a single safety issue taxonomy.  She creates project‑specific databases designed to allow users to more easily search, access and download content relevant to their needs from a self-contained, single interface environment.

Ms. Starkey’s major projects at PAI have included managing taxonomies for the cataloging, indexing, and analysis of data for numerous Federal Aviation administration (FAA) Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) programs, including a digital library of reliable resources that provides a repository of information related to topics of interest in aviation using CAST/ICAO Common Taxonomy Team (CICTT) taxonomies.  Ms. Starkey also has worked with the CICTT to create new taxonomies, coordinate meetings among taxonomy working groups, manage existing taxonomy updates, and assist in the dissemination of taxonomy information among CICTT members.  In addition, she works with the ASIAS Event Database as the database and data administrator, helps create digital resource management systems for the FAA Office of Rulemaking (ARM), and maintains the Airline Alliances project, which documents and displays the codeshares, memberships, and interline agreements relevant to U.S. domestic airlines on a quarterly basis.
