Head, Journalism Library

How long have you been working for the Journalism Library?

I’ve worked at the journalism library for 12 years.

What is your favorite thing about working with the library/campus?

I’ve always worked in public service because of people and my need to be of assistance.  So, I enjoy working with the journalism library’s incredible staff, students, faculty, alumni, visiting scholars and all who rely on us to anticipate and help fulfill their research and teaching needs.  I get enormous pleasure from helping people.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a doctor or more specifically, a pathologist or histologist.  I did get two biology degrees and taught anatomy and physiology at a college and nursing school and life science to junior high school students.

If you could live/travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I’ve been to several countries in Europe, but I would love to go to St. Petersburg, Russia.  Then, there are all of the Asian countries I need to visit.  So, the answer would probably be everywhere I haven’t been, then return to my favorites:  Vienna, Brussels, Innsbrook, Dublin…

October will be the start of my 30th year. So many things have changed since I started working here.  I’ve been through two library moves and mold crisis/disaster.

What is your favorite activity/part about Columbia?

My favorite activity is working with plants, gardening, artful pruning and making art with concrete.  I like parks and trails around Columbia.  I like to go off trail and find a babbling brook and sit and listen to the sounds of the water.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Truck driver ( So I could travel).

If you could live/travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Ireland – I want to retire there.

When I was younger I wanted to be a marine biologist, like those you see on shark week.
