- What is something about your job that you wish everyone knew? Working with our various patrons here at Peabody is one of my favorite things about my job. Whether you are a Vanderbilt student, faculty/staff member or a community patron; I’m always happy to assist with whatever questions you may have about the collection and will work to make sure your time spent here is productive and rewarding.
- What’s a professional accomplishment that you’re particularly proud of? In my short time at Peabody, I’m proud of the work I have done in collaboration with the library liaisons for collections. This includes weeding and downsizing in our reference section. This allows us to focus on making sure Peabody Library has access to and gives students the ability to utilize the most current and up to date information relating to the theory and practice of psychology, education, and special education.
- When you’re not at work, what’s your favorite thing to do to fill your time? When I’m not at work I thoroughly enjoy taking long walks through Shelby Bottoms Park, catching an up and coming band or artist at an East Nashville music venue, or drinking coffee at Barista Parlor/Cocktails at the Patterson House.
