About Me

I have been a Teen Services Librarian at Piscataway Public Library since 2011. I am responsible for programming, collection development, and outreach services for adolescents in grades 6-12, as well as reference services to patrons of all ages. I also collaborate with the Children's Department to provide programming for youth in grades K-5. As Branch Manager, I oversee the operations of the Westergard Branch of Piscataway Public Library. 

In addition, I am an active member of the New Jersey Library Association. Since joining NJLA, I have had the opportunity to become involved with various sections and committees including the Young Adult Services Section, Leadership and Education Subcommittee, Member Services Committee, Honors and Awards Subcommittee, Nominations and Elections Subcommittee, and Conference Subcommittee. I am also involved with the Libraries of Middlesex (LMx) Teen Group, which provides an opportunity for Young Adult/Teen Services Librarians in Middlesex County to meet up, collaborate on projects, and share experiences and ideas.
