Brief Biography: I have been working libraries since 2011, from large libraries in rich suburbs to small libraries to urban libraries in impoverished neighborhoods. Throughout that time I've been a part time library assistant to solo department head to director to middle management, experiencing and learning so much from not just my colleagues, but my library users and communities as well. I love to share my experience with others as much as possible, as I truly believe we can learn best from our peers, regardless of how long or short our careers may be.
Outside of libraries, I'm an avid runner and love spending time outdoors with my family.
