Special Interests

In my down time, I enjoy reading historical non-fiction and playing video games.  

I am originally from Elmwood Park, IL where I spent a lot of my childhood in the library with my grandmother. I have a Bachelors in History and a Masters in Library Science from Dominican University in River Forest, IL. Since 2012, I have been in charge of the Local History Room and collection. One of my proudest achievements is the new 3700 sq.ft. Local History Room built in 2015.
