I began working as a page while in high school at the Nanuet Public Library. As an undergraduate at Hood College I interned at the Beneficial Hodson Library. I attended graduate school at SUNY Albany and worked in the library on the graduate campus.
After obtaining my MLS I worked at the Ottendorfer branch of NYPL. I left Manhattan for a brief stint as a college librarian at Bridgewater College. While working in an academic library I learned that my heart really belonged in public libraries (and the NY metro area) so I came to New Jersey. Since moving to New Jersey I have worked at the West Caldwell Public Library and have served as director at the Cedar Grove, Bloomfield and Englewood Public Libraries.
