I've been a librarian in Arlington Public Schools since 2011. I have an undergraduate degree from Cornell and a masters from the University of Maryland. Before working for APS, I was a librarian at the Arlington Public Library. Before becoming a librarian, I worked for different conservation non-profit organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. I have a wonderful family, including my husband and two daughters: one in high school and the other in college at JMU (Go Dukes!). I am originally from Connecticut but have lived in the DC area since 1995. I love reading, of course, but I also love hiking, being in nature, photography, kayaking, and spending time with my family.
