What’s your earliest memory?
Mine involves libraries, of course. My journey in librarianship began by attending my hometown library’s public programming on a regular basis. From read-alouds as a child to career navigation and research as an adult, my community and academic libraries have served as safe spaces for exploration and discovery. Whenever I travel, I always remember to stop at a library—the comforting aromas of paper and possibilities mix effortlessly with community togetherness.
I feel fortunate to have had this library support throughout my life, and I have since dedicated my research and projects to the organization and expansion of the information sciences in various sectors—from libraries and schools to newsrooms and other community organizations. These unique places that foster both discovery and refuge shaped me into a civic-minded information professional, committed to cultivating future generations of library advocates.
