Meet the JDCHS Librarians!

I love being a Librarian at the JDCHS / S]BMS Library! I earned my BSE from the University of Kansas, and my MLS from Indiana University. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Leon, and I am the proud mother to two Juan Diego graduates, Amanda (2006) and Lauren (2011). Prior to moving to Utah, we lived in Colorado, Indiana, Wyoming, and Kansas where I worked in various schools and libraries. I enjoy reading a variety of genres, including nonfiction books about my hobbies including gardening, repurposing, quilting and soapmaking. Come see me in the Library whenever you need a book recommendation or if you want to collaborate on a class research project! I am always happy to help!

I grew up in West Jordan and have lived in Utah my entire life. I am married with one daughter attending S]BE. We also have two crazy bird dogs, a 20-year-old grumpy cat, and a rather pushy but affectionate Quarter Horse. I have a B.A. in English from Westminster College and I worked in the bookselling world for 13 years after college. I love Victorian-era British Literature as well as science fiction and fantasy. I also enjoy camping, fishing, horseback riding, hiking and spending time on my family's 5th generation ranch in Idaho. I'm happy to be in the Library at Juan Diego and love helping students find books that they can really enjoy!
