Getting to know your librarian . . . 

Where are you from?

My hometown is in Nebraska, but I have spent the past six years living in the wonderful city of San Antonio.  My husband and I just moved to Coppell, and we are looking forward to exploring and supporting this community and the surrounding communities. 

What are your favorite things to do?

I love reading, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, traveling, exploring, asking questions, and searching for answers. I also dabble in crochet, and I would really like to learn how to cook, embroider, and play the ukulele. 

What is your favorite book?

This is a difficult question for me because so often I get absorbed into a book that I can't put down.  It's almost like whatever book I am reading at the time is my favorite book.  My favorite books when I was in elementary school were Charlotte's Web, The Babysitters' Club, and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

What is your favorite family movie?

I have so many favorites, but I'd probably have to say The Wizard of Oz  or The Sound of Music.

What is your favorite color?

Red, but I also love light blue, mint, gray, and yellow.

What is your favorite food?

Ice cream
