Instructional Services Librarian
“As a librarian, I strive to provide quality educational opportunities so students learn not only how to be effective and ethical consumers of information, but also how to find their place in the scholarly dialogue that is an integral part of the academic experience. I hope to show students that the library is a welcoming place where they will always find someone willing to help them, no matter what their level of need may be.”
I come to Florida Southern College after seventeen years in the public school system in the Charleston, SC, area. Before moving to South Carolina, I earned my first B.A. in English Literature from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and my second B.A. in French, with a minor in History, from The University of Arizona. I went on to study French Language and Literature at Penn State University, receiving my M.A. in 1996. After moving to Charleston and teaching high school French for two years, I went back to school and earned a Master's in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina. I have spent the last fifteen years in school libraries, first as an assistant and then, after completing my M.L.I.S., as a school librarian.
I enjoy reading, travel, baking, spending time at the beach, going to movies, and playing games of trivia and general knowledge.
