About Me

I am currently the Head Teen Services Librarian at the Cape May County Library, an eight-branch library system in the southernmost NJ county. Our library system's teen nonfiction, teen graphic novels/manga, adult graphic novels, and music collections are my collection development/maintainance areas. My responsibilities also include developing teen programming, overseeing several long-running weekly or bi-weekly programs (Teen Game Night, Dungeons & Dragons, Manga/Anime Club, and Minecraft Club), and managing the Teen Summer Reading Program. Social media and website updates are part of my daily existence in Libraryland. I also supervise a night and weekend circulation crew.

I received my MLIS from the Graduate School of Library & Information Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
