Bio

I was born in Savannah, GA. I have one brother who is 8 years younger than me. I grew up mainly in Georgia, although I moved quite a bit as a child. My dad worked for the Army Corps of Engineers, so we got to live in places like Saudi Arabia. I moved to Cleveland, TN in 2001 with my husband, Shawn and three children; Gable, Virginia and Chase. We love it here. Tennessee is a beautiful state.

I am inspired by my parents. My dad is an electrical engineer and my mom is a librarian, so I am the blend of both of them.

I love to read! We read as a family on car trips. It is a great way to pass the time and enjoy some good stories. Some of my favorite books are The Chocolate Touch, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and The Emperor's New Clothes. Some of my favorite authors/illustrators are Eric Carle, Jan Brett, Tommy DePaolo, and Dr. Seuss.

I feel it is important that the library be a warm and welcoming environment to all students. It should be staffed with a friendly and helpful personnel. I strive to provide the students and staff with the guidance and tools necessary to become information literate individuals. As a librarian, it is my ambition to help pave the path for life-long learning.

Go Knights!
