During her time at UH, she has served on numerous university, college, and library committees. Ferimer is a member of the Association of Vision Science Librarians, the Medical Library Association (MLA), and the Houston Health Science Librarians. She has published in both library and vision science journals, and presented at both library and optometry meetings.
