I have been with the Library since December of 2015. I have a bachelor’s degree in education that I received from Purdue (Boiler Up!) in 2013. I was born and grew up in the Amboy/Converse area and graduated from Oak Hill in 2008. In my spare time I like to help on the family farm and watch movies. I also volunteer at my church. I love to read and like many different books and genres; feel free to ask me for recommendations. This is my first library job and I love it; being able to work in the area I grew up in and love coming into work is a joy!
My husband Brad and I have been happily married for 28 years and we have three sons; Zach, Eli, and Jonah. It was almost 10 years ago that I started working at the Library. I work as the program director here and I enjoy planning different activities and events for all age groups. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, riding bikes, playing disc golf, and planting flowers. We also love to cruise, travel, and go camping with friends at state parks all over Indiana and Michigan.
My husband, Brian & I have been happily married for nearly 20 years & have 2 children; Autumn & Noah. I grew up in Summitville, Indiana & graduated from Madison-Grant High School. I started working at the library in October of 2013 & can honestly say it is my favorite job that I’ve ever had. I enjoy interacting with the patrons who come in to use the library & seeing familiar faces from the community & meeting new people. I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. I also enjoy volunteering at a local food pantry , listening to music & reading when I can find the time ;)
I have been married to Paul for 31 years in October of this year. We have two adult daughters. Our youngest daughter was married in October of last year and our eldest daughter is engaged to be married in December of this year. I have loved to read my entire life! On my days off from the Library, I enjoy shopping for and buying antiques and upcycling used items to sell at my booth in Marion. I am also a huge animal lover and enjoy our two rescue dogs and cat immensely! I have been employed at the Library since September of 2015. My favorite thing about my job at the Library is processing and handling the new book orders; the children and the elderly patrons are the icing on the cake at my job here at the Library for sure!
I started working at the Library in January of 2017. I am married to Nijaul and mother to Wyatt, Kenae, and Karina. I grew up in Gas City, IN, and earned my college degree at Indiana Wesleyan University. I really enjoy reading, when I have time, and I love to read many different genres. I love watching my kids in their different sports and activities, which keeps me rather busy. My family and I also love to go camping; it is a wonderful family activity. We really enjoy visiting the many different State Parks in Indiana as well as other states. One of our favorite parks is Gulf Shores Alabama State Park. I love working at the Library and helping patrons find books that they enjoy reading.
