About Me

I am so excited to be at Hampton Elementary. I have worked at Henry Public Library in McDonough, Clayton State University Library, Valdosta State University Library and Archives, Bibb County Schools and Newton County Schools. I even interned at the CNN Library! My favorite part of being a librarian is finding answers to questions. I assist children in reaching their literacy and learning goals, hunt for resources for teachers when they are planning their lessons, support the curriculum by providing extended learning opportunities and maintain the library. In short, I have a lot of fun. My husband, my son and I live in McDonough. We have a dog named Bonnie and a cat named Ella. I grew up in a swamp right on the Georgia-Florida line. I like reading (of course!), movies, HGTV, cruises, traveling and spending time at my happy place: Hobby Lobby.
