I am beginning my 32nd year here at Elder Grove! I was born and raised in Eureka, CA which is a small town in the Redwood Forest on the ocean. I had a incredible childhood where I was able to travel and we did not have a TV. I rode the bus for an hour to school and read. Hmmm can you see why I love being a librarian? I married my husband Todd and moved to Montana in 1986. We have a son, Eli who is finishing his nursing degree in Boise Idaho and a daughter Emily who graduated in 2017 from Bozeman in Graphic Design. My hobbies are playing with tech, exercising, eating healthy, gardening, reading, creating (especially things from items that are being thrown out) and spending time with my family. I LOVE to learn and find great joy in researching questions. I hope you stop in the library and visit. And you can always drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
