She helps to maintain and promote the law library's electronic resources, and she also provides research, reference, and instructional services to the school of Law's faculty and students.

She earned her M.L.S., M.S. in information science, J.D., and B.A., magna cum laude, all from the University of Pittsburgh.

Before returning to librarianship, Tedjeske practiced law for 16 years at several AMLAW 100 firms in Pittsburgh. As an attorney, she focused on civil litigation and was actively involved in pro bono matters. As part of her pro bono service, Tedjeske worked on a free exercise of religion case on behalf of the Amish; represented KidsVoice, a non-profit child advocacy organization, in an appeal; assisted a veteran in obtaining disability benefits; represented a prisoner in a civil rights matter; and obtained a sentence reduction for a prisoner as part of Clemency Project 2014.
