September 2012 MULSA Spotlight Award Winner: Michaelle Dorsey

Our Spotlight Award winner for September 2012 is Michaelle Dorsey!

Michaelle Elizabeth Dorsey is a Library Information Specialist II with the Physical Processing/Preservation Unit in the Acquisitions Department, located in Ellis Library.  Michaelle has been in her position with the Libraries for 18.5 years.  She originally hails from Jefferson City, and has both a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting.

Michaelle’s favorite snack is a vanilla iced latte, and she has one cat, a 15-year-old domestic short hair tabby named Glass.  In her free time, Michaelle likes gardening, role-playing games (AKA “nerd sport”), drawing, crochet, and sewing.

Michaelle calls this photo "a case of bad teeth."

In a movie of her life, the soundtrack would include “People are Strange” by the Doors, “These Boots are Made for Walking” by Nancy Sinatra, “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” by the Smashing Pumpkins, “What’s New Pussycat” by Tom Jones, “Hold On” by Alabama Shakes, “Milk and Sugar” by G Love & Special Sauce, “I’m Shakin'” by Jack White, “Mercedes Benz” by Janis Joplin, and “Senses Working Overtime” by XTC.  In this movie, Janeane Garofalo would play Michaelle.

What real or fictional person would she enjoy having a drink with, and what drink?

Leonardo Da Vinci, the drink: a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip.  OK, so I cheated and tried to come up with the most complicated coffee drink I could find because I thought Leo would enjoy “dissecting” the recipe.

Michaelle’s favorite shoes were a pair of ox blood colored Doc Martens and a pair of teal Converse, which she says took her through her college years and beyond.

Thanks Michaelle, and congratulations!
