What are excited about in your new job?

I am very excited to learn more about UNM as an organization, explore campus, learn about all the different departments, and get to know everyone. I am especially excited to join a library special project team and visit the new SCR. I also can’t wait to start diving into research questions!

Where are you from/where did you grow up?

I grew up in Northwest Indiana near the Chicago area, but my husband and I moved here from Kansas City a little over two years ago.

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to listen to audiobooks (I am particularly thrilled by innovative recordings with full casts or sound effects), to go thrifting, to go on hikes, and to travel to new places (I am always looking for recommendations).

What’s your favorite food?

If I had to choose... I am partial to noodles of all kinds!

If you didn’t work in libraries, what do you think you’d be doing?

I think I could possibly enjoy working behind the scenes on a TV show or theater production. I have never worked on an official set, but it looks like it could be fun and challenging.
