I enjoy helping students improve their academic and research skills so they can own their college education.  The best part of my job is creating spaces, services, and experiences that promote student success at Defiance College.  When not in the Pilgrim Library assisting students, I enjoy walking & hiking, reading, binge watching British movies and tv series, cooking, doing jigsaw puzzles, and most importantly, spending time with my family.
