I came to BCPL in 2018 to be closer to home and to find a better work-life balance. I started as the Circulation Manager at the Main Library in Burlington and later became the Business Services Director, handling the financial and business functions for the Library system. 

Prior to BCPL, I attended Miami University in Ohio as a Pre-Law/Sociology major but later decided to change schools and majors. I ultimately earned a Bachelor’s in Business Management and spent 12+ years in the Corporate Safety & Security industry managing a 24/7 operations center. 

My favorite thing about working at BPCL is the friendly faces of my co-workers. I believe the staff at BCPL are among the kindest and most helpful I’ve experienced. Their graciousness extends to both their co-workers and the public that they serve. Many are unaware of the vast array of services that the Library provides, and I love being a part of something that serves the community in such a variety of ways. 

I moved to Boone County in 2012, but I was originally born and raised on the East side of Cincinnati. So, while I am not a native of the county, after 10 years it definitely feels like home. I live here with my husband, my 2 sons, and our 2 dogs. My sons are 7 years old and 7 months old, so they definitely keep me busy. We enjoy many outdoor activities, including trying out all the local parks and watching/coaching my oldest son at baseball. When my boys aren’t keeping me busy, I enjoy baking, listening to true crime podcasts, and reading.
