I was born in PA, and moved around a lot until finally my folks settled down in 1985 in Winchester, Va. I earned my BA from George Mason University in Aug of 2000. I majored in Government and International Politics with a minor in History. While I was a undergrad I was able to intern at The White House, in the Office of National AIDS Policy.
After doing a 180 degrees from not going to work for the State Department I went to my original goal, and went into education. With that I got a job at Randolph Macon Academy Middle School in Front Royal, Va., as a dorm counselor. I was there for 7 1/2 years, with the last four years as the Middle School librarian. With my love of being a book nerd I took the deep plunge of leaving my full-time job, to be a full-time grad student here at The University of Alabama. Since, Aug. of 2008 I have been a full-time graduate student in the School of Library and Information Studies. My focus is School Media and also Federal Libraries. I hoping to graduate on may 8, 2010.
My dream job would be working in the library of the United states Holocaust Memorial Museum, and in conjunction with their education center, working with middle and high school students research the Holocaust.
Since I started working here in September at Hoole I have been scanning in the papers of the Woodward Family, and I have really enjoyed working here in my short time, and I really like the workplace and my co-workers a lot.
