It all started way back when I was a little kid in Georgia with two older brothers, a thriving Annie Oakley complex, and a love of reading and drawing. I learned quickly that books and art could give you a special connection to the world beyond your immediate surroundings.
This early love led me to study art at Berry College and then Cranbrook Academy of Art. During this time, libraries continued to be a gateway to the wider world. As I entered library school at UCLA and investigated libraries further, it became clear libraries can be a powerful force in their communities. I believe libraries are hubs of equity, opportunity, and empowerment.
I joined the Dallas Public Library in 2014 and now serves as their Adult Services Administrator. This means I facilitate programs to improve and enrich the adult population of Dallas. If you’d like an ally in strengthening the communities around you, I’m your partner.
