Born and raised in Newark, Ohio. I graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor's of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Studies, focus in English and Women's Studies. For the past three years I have been working full-time with a financial institution in Newark as a project manager, while simultaneously pursuing my Masters of Library and Information Science with Kent State University. I plan to complete my degree in August of 2013 and will be seeking employment in an academic, special or public library setting. I am interested in the areas of information literacy, organization of and access to information.
