Born in Jos, Nigeria, I spent the first 18 years of my life as a missionary kid. I returned to Texas for college, receiving a BA in Elementary Education from Dallas Baptist University. After teaching 4th grade ESL in Texas for 4 years, my Australian husband and I moved to Telluride in 2003. Starting out in seasonal jobs, we quickly put down roots by purchasing a home in Norwood. I first worked at the Telluride library for 1 year and then became the District/HS Librarian for the Norwood School District where I worked for 5 years. During this time, I earned my Masters Degree in Educational Media (School Librarianship) from UNC Greeley.  I began working as the Library Director of the Norwood library in 2010. These have been exciting and rewarding years, during which time I have had the honor to serve the community in many ways including sitting on the boards of the Prime Time Leadership board, Chamber of Commerce, Lone Cone Legacy Trust, WEEDC, and multiple initiatives. I also served on the board of the Colorado Library Consortium, a state-wide agency providing continuing education, cooperative purchasing, regional consulting, and ILS management to libraries all over the state.

Now that the new library facility has been completed, I am excited to see it used by the local and regional community in new and creative ways which bring more opportunities to our citizens.
