I have worked in libraries for over 30 years. I began working part-time at our local library. After a few years, I became a full time library staff member.  My children literally grew up in the library!  As the children grew older, I went back to school to get my Master’s in Library Science, which would make me an “official” librarian. While I was in library school, I became interested in academic libraries, and worked as an intern at UC’s DAAP Library. The library director was a wonderful mentor to me, and we’re still good friends. I enjoyed guiding students and assisting faculty to find resources. I worked in two other colleges before I came to Clermont College in 2007.

As Reference Librarian, I love to help students find what they need for their projects. I especially like to surprise them by showing them the many resources the library has to offer.  I try to be as friendly and helpful as I can, so they remember they can come to the library as a space and if they require assistance, there is a friendly person to help them.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my grandchildren, especially when we draw, paint and read! Okay, I might have to include playing Dance Revolution, too!

Something that might surprise you about me is that my brother and I were once protected by Pinkerton guards.

Now for a few of my favorite things:

Ohh! So many to choose from!

Book: Mama Day

Music: Eric Clapton

TV Show: Mad Men
