I have worked in a variety of library settings--as the saying goes "Variety is the spice of life!" I have found my various experiences have been an asset to me as a public library director. I first entered the library profession in 2002, as an Associate Educational Media Specialist. I went through the Alternate Route Program, completing all but the pre-phase (as I started the program late). Additionally, I have experience at the college-level, as a Library Specialist, a Reference Librarian, and an Online Librarian. I have also taught graduate-level library science courses, as an online adjunct, for Drexel University's iSchool. Prior to becoming the Library Director of the Cumberland County Library, I was the Library Director of the Deptford Free Public Library. I have enjoyed a multitude of experiences throughout my career, including virtual reference, programming and information literacy instruction, community outreach and business partnership.
