I began my career at KPL in the spring of 1999 as lead librarian at the Alma Powell Branch and remained at the Powell branch until 2006 when I moved to the Central library and the Loan & Outreach Services department. In the fall of 2007 I became head of the Adult Services Department where I oversee the libraries adult print collections, Audiovisual, Law Library, Local History Room, ONEplace services to nonprofits, reference service, Tech Center, and an assortment of other library programs and services.
I feel tremendous pride working for the Kalamazoo Public Library and I continue to believe in the essential value of public libraries.
