Where did you come from before working at UK?I received my education from UK, I also worked in the Fine Arts Library and in the Special Formats Unit as a student. I guess you could say I came from UK. Last year, however, I was in Louisville teaching cello lessons at The Waldorf School, volunteering at the public library, and working in a small career college as a librarian.
What are your hobbies and interests?I like to play my cello, garden, bake, make crafty things, and play roller derby. I also really enjoy cooking. Basically, my hobby is to stay busy.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.I used to practice archery, but haven’t in a long time since it’s hard to find a place close to my house that allows one to shoot sharp objects at targets.I also have been known to collect lists, notes, and pictures left behind by others.
Are you a morning person?No, but I really wish I was.
Do you have any children, pets, or especially interesting house plants?I have pets. I have a large white German Shepherd, Franklin, a 13 year old tabby cat named Linus, and 2 female cats, Beatrice and Tatiana. They are all very spoiled.Favorite sports teams?
Eh, I don’t have one. I will watch the occasional game, but overall I don’t really care too much. I would rather play a sport than watch it.
Favorite Book?It changes all the time.
Favorite Movie?That changes all the time too.Favorite Food or Restaurant?
Favorite food would probably be duck confit, but I don’t have it very often. My favorite restaurant- in Lexington- I guess it would be Sugano. That is a hard one because, unfortunately, there aren’t too many choices here for independently owned restaurants.
Favorite thing about Lexington?
My family lives here.
What has been your greatest challenge in your new position? The most satisfying aspect?
I’m still learning. I find this challenging and satisfying.
