I have a BA in Philosophy from Mount Mary University (2002) and a MLIS from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (2007). I started as a library assistant at Froedtert Hospital in 2003 before accepting a librarian position in 2006 and moving to Eau Claire, WI. In 2016, I became the library supervisor. My primary duties are management, overseeing the patient library, ILL, collection development, budgeting, research requests, orienting new employees, and outreach to departments. In addition to serving on several state and local library committees, I am the WHSLA membership coordinator, so please send your membership renewals!
While my husband, Tony, and I are both from southeast WI, we found we love living up north. It can be quite cold in the winter, but we do not miss the Milwaukee traffic! We have two dogs named Harry and Poogle. Poogle is a 5 year old beagle poodle mix and Harry is a 1 year Aussie. We also have a 6.5 month old baby girl named Madeline (Maddie), and while I’m sure that all moms think this, she is truly the best baby ever. I used to have hobbies but I cannot really remember them right now. (Does doing laundry or washing bottles count as hobbies?) I think I used to read, scrapbook, travel and cook….and someday will do those things again. But for now my hobbies are Maddie and the dogs.
