    Biography
     
    This is my sixth year as a library media specialist for Sipsey Valley.  My husband Joey, my son Joseph, and our australian shepherd Jasper live close by in Buhl.  It is an honor to serve Sipsey Valley as a librarian and to be a part of this community.  I'm looking forward to another wonderful year in Bear Country!
