I was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the middle child of three. I grew up in a house were education was held in high regard. I developed a love of libraries at a young age and nurtured it all the way through college. I started my freshman year as a student worker at Jackson Library on UNCG’s main campus. Throughout the years I was able to work in many different departments with lots of awesome librarians. After switching my major my second year in college I started to think seriously about the field of Library and Information Studies. I graduated from University of North Carolina at Greensboro in December of 2007 with a BA in History. I then went to work at a public library for a year before deciding to go back to school, and get a MLIS. In May of 2011 I matriculated once again from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with my Masters in Library and Information Studies. In the fall of that same year I started work as a Reference Librarian in the Information Services department at a public library in Winston-Salem, NC.
I have created this site to capture my two year journey of getting my MLIS as well as my progression through the professional world of librarianship.
