Before I came to MJC in 2009, I worked as a children's librarian; I have 25 years of experience in public libraries throughout California and in St. Thomas, USVI. My favorite activity is reading--I love children's and teen books, William Faulkner, and 19th century English literature. I also love taking long walks with my dog, Maya, baking cakes and cookies, and traveling. 

Although I am a 4th generation Californian, I didn't move to the Central Valley until I was an adult. For the past 26 years, I have lived in Modesto with my husband Alan. Our grown children live in Southern California, currently my favorite travel destination.
