I received my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2009. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Radio/TV/Film from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2003.
Working at Polk Library as a student employee while attending college ultimately led to my interest in pursuing a career in the library science field. After graduating from UW Oshkosh, I began working as the night-time supervisor in the Circulation department--a position I held until 2010. During that time, I decided that I wanted to turn that job into a career and began working on earning my master's degree while employed full-time at Polk Library. In 2009, I completed that degree and in 2010, I began my current position as the Circulation Services Librarian at Polk Library.
I am a member of the Wisconsin Library Association. I have served on a few search committees for library staff and I've participated in several library events including the annual book sale and several years with the annual library murder mystery, "Murder in the Stacks". As a student at UW Oshkosh, I was involved with the campus radio station, WRST.
