I am currently the manager of a community library within the Volusia County Library system, with a focus on garnering greater community involvement and outreach to capture the family and new adult audience. I received my BA from UNC-Chapel Hill in communication studies and my MLIS from USF. I was a graduate from the year 16 SSLLI class.
Prior to beginning my career at the library I worked as a recreation and resort activities coordinator and a trainer for one of the Orlando theme parks, and I have carries those experiences over to use in library world.
I love programming for elementary ages through adults, creating partnerships in the community, and developing staff so that they can meet their professional goals.
I am currently piloting a series of online programming (to transition to in-person when we are able) for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities set to debut in October.
