Education: B.A., History, English Literature Minor, Eureka College, 2010
I came to Eureka College as the Access Services Coordinator having had two years’ experience working as a student assistant within the Technical Services area of Melick Library. In this capacity, I worked on book cataloging/processing, serials processing, invoicing, and some minor book repair. I also assisted with circulation and inter-library loan processing when needed. In 2018, I made the transition from Access Services to Technical Services where I now oversee the library's collection development, cataloging, invoicing and library systems administration.
Current research interests include library trends, technology trends within the library space, book and e-book usage data, reading trends within the YA (Young Adult) genres.
I first came to Eureka as a student in 2006 and I just never left! So many great things happened to me on this campus: I got my first job outside of my family’s business as a student at Eureka; I met the love of my life here when I was a freshman; I started working here full time right after graduation and have been here ever since. I am who I am today because of Eureka.
I’ve been married to my wonderful husband Jason (whom I met on Eureka’s campus) since January 2010. I spend most of my free time reading and making sure my cats aren't destroying my furniture.
