Tell us what you do in 50 words or less
I am in charge of the serials: all the newspapers, magazines and journals that come in to the Library need to be checked in so you can see what issues we have in the online catalog. I’m also responsible for InterLibrary Loan: any time you request a book or article from another library, those requests come through me.

Choose one service that your department provides that you most want the Wheelock community to be aware of:
Children’s magazines – we have a great collection of them, and they are available to be checked out for use in practicum settings, with children you baby-sit, or even just for your own nostalgia (Highlights, anyone?).

What is your favorite website? is a great daily dose of the absurdity of working with the public.

What is your favorite book in the Wheelock Library collection?
I can only pick one? To Kill a Mockingbird is definitely one of my all-time favorites.
As a child, I loved the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary, several of which are available in our collection. We also have Girl from Yamhill: a memoir, Beverly Cleary’s memoir.

When I’m not at work, you can find me…
Reading the same book over and over again to my toddler, watching TV (Food Network and sitcoms are my usual fare, with a little Discovery Channel thrown in for good measure), and dreaming of new mosaic projects.
