On my first day at a new job while still in library school, I was asked to introduce myself to the department. I spoke for about ten seconds about my course of study before a new colleague from accounting narrowed her eyes with a skeptical smile. “You’re pretty outgoing for a librarian, aren’t you?”

Indeed I am. I entered this profession after many years teaching not because I love books (though I do love books), but because I love people. I consider myself blessed to bring both together in my service as librarian and media specialist for the David R. LaRock Library at Academy of Holy Angels in Richfield, Minnesota.

When school is out, I can be found working on language revitalization and linguistic equity issues and scribbling poetry, among other things.

You can learn more about all my endeavours on these pages, but the best way is to grab a cup of coffee with me whenever you happen to be in the Twin Cities. The next best is to drop me a line here or on Twitter.
