I got my Bachelors degree in European History from the University of San Francisco, originally intending to become a professor in Greco-Roman history. Life had another thing planned for me; however, and an internship at a local high school’s media center set me on a different path. I made the decision to get my Masters in Library and Information Science, specializing in technology and databases, and found myself back in my home state of Texas, working as a Technology Specialist librarian at Houston Public Library. There I had the opportunity to teach technology skills to staff and the public, conduct a seminar on emerging apps at the annual Texas Library Association conference, and become familiar with a wide variety of databases and research tools.
Whilst I enjoyed what I did there, I always had the yearning to get back into a school library. When I saw the librarian position open at the British International School and learned about the values and goals of the school, I jumped at the opportunity. As a librarian, I have a passion for technology and the ways it expands our world and creates a global community. As an instructor, I believe in hands on learning and using what you already know as a foundation for exploration and experimentation.
I’m an incurable animal lover. I’ve been an avid equestrian all of my life. Though I took a break from the competitive world for a while, I recently started training for three day eventing and look forward to seeing what my new horse, Kili, and I can do. I have two dogs: an overgrown schnoodle named Chekov and a Cirneco named Ulla. When the weather allows it, we enjoy going on hiking trips in the many national parks around Texas.
