I am originally from North Dakota, lived in Utah for 2 years, and currently live in Wyoming. My husband, Kelly, is serving in the United States Air Force. We have a son, Ryan, and two dachshunds, KC and Elmo. I have worked in two academic libraries, an Air Force library, and now work in an elementary school library. I chose librarianship as a profession after I completed my student teaching in a toddler classroom. I realized that story time was my favorite part of the day and I had been working in libraries throughout my college career so librarianship became the obvious choice.

I have always loved stories, whether told or read, and I am a bit of a drama queen so storytelling comes to me quite easily. My favorite stories to tell are folk tales, fairy tales, and funny stories. I am drawn to these because they are the ones I heard or read the most as a child. Also, if a story is funny I can usually remember it. I also like stories in which I can use puppets or felt board objects. These seem to draw the kids into the stories.
