My Professional Aspirations

I aspire to deliver, enlighten and advance excellent modern service and opportunities – through innovative ideas and programs – for the library’s ever-changing community of users by:

  • Embracing current technologies (ebooks, social media, mobile apps, etc.)
  • Exploring the community’s needs through conversation and collaboration with organizations outside of the library (schools, businesses, churches, food shelves, day cares, senior citizen centers, etc.)
  • Promoting the library’s mission with each service the library provides (programming for youth and adults, its collections, physical and virtual interactions, etc.) and
  • Building better service and opportunities for the community through professional development in the field of library and information science.

I graduated (March 2011) with my MLIS from the University of Washington Information School in Seattle, Washington. I began my position as Library Director of Muir Library in Winnebago, Minnesota in April 2011.

In five years, I imagine myself being the director of a small to medium-sized public library where the community of staff and users is diverse in its lifestyles and needs and where I can be working directly with them to create successful services, tools and programs for tomorrow’s library users.
