I work on the main floor in office B107. My primary responsibility is managing interlibrary loan requests. I love to get challenging requests for hard-to-find books, newspapers, or journal articles. I have requested books from as far away as Alaska, and I sent an article to a library in Brazil. I also have the opportunity to work with students using the library’s open computer lab. It’s very gratifying when I can help a student find the right materials to complete their assignments.
I have an AAS from VWCC in Radiologic Technology and a BBA from Roanoke College. Prior to transferring to the Library, I worked for several years in the college’s Human Resource office. I miss working with the employees, but I enjoy working with students and getting to know the college from the academic perspective.
I volunteer with the Conflict Resolution Center as a Family Mediator. It’s amazing to see two people come to an agreement to resolve their problems rather than going to court and having a judge make the decisions for their family. My other non-work activities usually involve either my church or my three-year-old granddaughter.
