What do you like most about working in the Cornette Library? I love the people! My favorite part is meeting all the students with their different research interests. I learn so much from them!

What is your favorite book(s)/author? This is like asking me to pick my favorite child. I couldn’t possibly choose. But Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is pretty great. Or The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte. Oh! Or Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. I really like books.

What is your favorite local attraction? I spent a really great afternoon sending pictures of Cadillac Ranch to my friends without any sort of context. I’m going to treasure their reactions for a while.

Hobbies: When I’m not reading or watching far too much Netflix, I really enjoy embroidery. I’m not very good at it, but I like it.

Rules to live by: Have fun with whatever you’re doing.

You might be surprised to know that I: Was technically a nationally registered EMT for two years.
