Profile

As a former English teacher, I love to read and find both fiction and nonfiction entertaining.  As a research specialist, assisting students in finding the best resource for both the general and specific research question is rewarding.  Finally, leisure time ranges from golfing to hiking to dabbling in a bit of art.
