At a glance

I love my jobs.  By day, I work with vast amounts of data that I leverage to help library staff members make decisions about the library and where it is headed.  I need to know almost every aspect of our integrated library system so I can help teach and troubleshoot the software.  By night, I work with and teach students about the library. Each time I interact with a student or community member is an opportunity to teach about the library and its services but also to extend the love of libraries that I have myself.  Both jobs allow me to use my excellent customer service skills to make each person as happy with their experience as possible.
