Each day at Boone County Public Library is as fascinating as each person that walks through our doors. There is never a dull moment! As the Outreach Manager, I oversee services provided beyond our buildings to adults and youth, as well as the Mobile BIL which takes technology into the community.

After working in academic libraries in Cincinnati for 15 years, I grew restless and decided to try my hand at public libraries. In 2001, I found myself both moving to a new home in Boone County and assuming a position as a children’s librarian at BCPL. After 11 years as a librarian, serving the last nine as a reference librarian, I moved into my role as Outreach Manager where I have spent the past 11 years.

My time at BCPL helped me to call Boone County my home. I count many of my customers as dear friends. I am a member of the Boone County Extension Homemakers and enjoy the activities offered by the club.

I keep plenty busy outside of work. Since the pandemic, I have rekindled my love of baseball, especially the Cincinnati Reds. I also enjoy making earrings with sterling silver and semi-precious gemstone beads. Barry, my husband of 35 years, and I live with our dogs in Hebron.
