For me, research is like solving a mystery: the information is out there, somewhere, and by following the clues it’s findable. My goal is to create lifelong learners – people who find gathering information about a topic they’re personally interested in to be exciting.  I also am an avid reader in all genres, averaging 300 books/year.

As a former high school history teacher, I am excited to be working at Milton Academy. I hope to play a role in creating the most usable, accessible, inclusive and productive library for everyone in our community. I am particularly passionate about research, information literacy, and (of course) history. I also love meeting new people; so please stop by the library for help with anything and everything – or just to say hi!

After a long sojourn in the South, I’m excited to join the library team at Milton. What I love about being a librarian in an independent school is that every day is different, with unique questions and challenges. But the common factor is that we’re here to help and goal is to find the perfect resource for you – in whatever format works best for you.
