Biography

Before moving to Ketchikan, I lived in Boise, Idaho. I worked for a small, independent bookstore called Rediscovered Books. Mostly, I spent my time raising my five wonderful children with my husband Jordan, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and reading voraciously.

In 2015, I began working as a substitute library assistant at the Ketchikan Public Library before transitioning to working at the UAS Ketchikan campus library until 2019.  I now support students and faculty in our Career and Technical programs.

I enjoy history, poetry, powerlifting, grappling, and a good strong cup of coffee.
