Director of Library Services
Before coming to North Central in 2016, I served for more than 8 years as a librarian at the Daniel Boone Regional Library in Columbia, Missouri. I completed my M.A. in Information Science and Learning Technologies (a.k.a. Library Science) at the University of Missouri in 2007.
My husband, Rich, and I enjoyed many years of full-time ministry with the Assemblies of God as lead pastors, missionary associates, and worship pastors. Along the way, I spent some time teaching elementary and high school as well as raising our two sons.
I enjoy running, cooking, playing music, and, of course, reading.
Some of my hobbies (aside from reading) include spending time with my husband and our pug, frequenting local bookstores and coffee shops, and baking.
Instruction and Electronic Services Librarian
I have lived near the Twin Cities all my life and yet spending time in Downtown Minneapolis feels new for me.
Previous to starting at North Central in 2017, I worked 2 years as a reference librarian at Concordia University in St. Paul, MN and 10 years in a bookstore.
During college as an undergrad, I was a studio arts major, but I loved working at Concordia’s library as a student worker. This passion lead me to pursue and complete an M.L.I.S in Library and Information Science from St. Kate's University (MN). If I’m not trying to catch up on reading, I enjoy making art, baking, gardening or walking in local parks.
