I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Kindergarten Education and a Master's in Library Science, both from UW-Madison, which is my home town. Before moving to Fond du Lac, I taught preschool for 10 years. I have been a librarian since 1994. I spent 14 years as a children's and teen librarian, and am now a reference librarian. I have three boys, two grandkids and a rambunctious dog named Cocoa. I can be reached by phone at (920) 322-3934 or email [email protected].

I grew up in Fond du Lac and have always enjoyed coming to the public library. Now I am one of the reference librarians.
