Howdy! I started volunteering in libraries when I was twelve and have never left, and have worked/volunteered in public, academic, school, or law libraries. I have been at Flagler College since graduating with my MA in Library Science from USF in 2007, and in 2012 I founded Special Collections at Flagler College. Other duties include serving as one of the internship supervisors, creating displays, reference, instruction, preservation and disaster preparation, and being one half of the team for Meet the Collections and Curators (a twice a semester event introducing students, staff, and faculty to the items housed in the Archives or Special Collections). Special Collections has one student worker whom I supervise.

I have many interests outside of work including taking part in living history demonstrations when the opportunity arises.
