I work largely behind-the-scenes making sure our collection can be easily discovered as well as accessible. If you have visited our OneSearch page or checked out our physical materials, you have seen my handiwork. I also love teaching folks about the Library's resources,in addition to improving their information and digital literacy skills. I am a current adjunct to the LIS program, teaching the Online Learning & Technologies course.
I am a part of several local and state committees, believing strongly in the power of civic engagement; most recently taking part in The Neighborhood Safety and Relations Task Force here in Eau Claire.
When not working or trying to build community dialogue, I also enjoy live concerts, revamping a 1912 American Foursquare, and disc golf. Fun fact: I spent 14 years working in (and managing) a large commercial kitchen in a local, skilled nursing facility.
