I grew up going to the public library after school and participating in the summer reading programs. The ever changing, but consistent, mission of libraries fascinated me and drew me into the profession. I’ve had the privilege of working in diverse library settings, from public and school libraries to academic institutions. My goal is to help patrons in their research endeavors and show them all the services a library can provide. Beyond libraries, I enjoy playing tennis, reading on my Kindle and sleeping. I spend most of my free time with my family and friends, mostly sharing a delicious meal.
