This is my twelfth year as the media coordinator, librarian, and system operator at W.A. Bess. Before W.A. Bess, I was an adult reference librarian for Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, Children's Coordinator of the Gaston-Lincoln Regional Library and Children's Room Manager for the York County Public Library in Rock Hill, SC. I have over twenty years experience as a librarian and I still love books just as much as I did when I was a kid. I love seeing kids excited about books!
I grew up in Salisbury, North Carolina and graduated from West Rowan High School. I then earned a B.A. in Literature from UNC Asheville and a Masters in Library Science from UNC Greensboro. I am also certified in school media from East Carolina University. I enjoy keeping up with the newest trends in literature, so I have been a volunteer juvenile fiction and young adult fiction book reviewer for School Library Journal for twenty years.
I have been married for twenty-four years and I have a daughter that's a sophomore at UNCC and a son that's a senior in high school. I spend a lot of time going to my kids' soccer games, but if I have any free time, I like to cook, cross stitch, and, of course, read books!
