Brief Biography

Before moving to Tallahassee in June of 2009, I spent most of my life in central Illinois. I earned a B.A. in Russian & East European Studies, and EdM in Human Resource Education and a M. S. in Library & Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In addition to my areas of responsibility, I also have a passion for working within the areas of LGBT, Gender, and Women's studies. While at the University of Illinois, I worked extensively to help archive the Irene Tinker collection for Women in International Development. I also enjoy traveling and exploring other cultures and have visited over twenty countries on five continents. I hope you will stop by to ask me a question or simply to say Hello.
