I'm a lifelong lover of art, literature and education. My first career was in book publishing where I specialized in marketing children's, YA and adult books to libraries and bookstores. After ten years I retired to raise my children. Then I fulfilled my lifelong dream of becoming a librarian.

I am the librarian at Weston High School in MA where I am lucky to work with fabulous students and colleagues. I am currently working on revamping my research and technology course, transforming our library into a learning commons and building my teaching skills.

I have presented at the Massachusetts School Librarian Association Annual Conference and at the Massachusetts Library Association. I have published an article in the Young Adult Library Association journal.

Lifelong learning, having fun while doing it and working with students are my priorities.
