I grew up in a small town in Oregon and went to college at Western Oregon University, receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature with a minor in Writing. After which, I moved to Denver and ended up getting my Master’s of Science in Library and Information Science, with a focus in Resource Description and Access. I became a book reviewer shortly following my hire as an Adult Services Librarian, where I ran multiple book clubs and started creating display themes that brought the genres of today’s literature in better light for me and created a passion for Reader’s Advisory that I never knew I was capable of nurturing. I can’t describe how great it feels when someone tells me that they loved the author that I recommended for them, it’s so great to introduce people to something that they love and nurture literacy in that way! There are books out there for everyone, they just need to be allocated correctly!
