I was born in Philadelphia, PA and moved to California in 1979. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. I graduated in 1978 with a Master of Library Science from the University of Maryland. I am married with two children. I worked for 25 years with consulting engineers in engineering libraries. I made a career change in 2006 when I came to Incarnation School. I love working with children and buying new books I know the students will enjoy. My favorite pastimes include reading every day, sitting with my two cats- Duncan (Hihn) and Mr. Boots; and cross stitching.
