School Library Representative

I believe every student deserves a strong library program provided by a qualified librarian. As such, I am serving on IHLS Board of Directors to assist in creating a supportive climate for school libraries and librarians both within IHLS and throughout the State of Illinois.

Public Library Representative

I've been a library-geek since I was a very young child; and interestingly enough I'm in the same library now as I was then (Granite City is my hometown). I've worked in libraries across Illinois for almost - gasp - 30 years! It is my honor and privilege to try to support and contribute as much as possible to all types of libraries, because all types of libraries have added so much to my life both personally and professionally.
