    I come to librarianship with a non-profit background in youth development, family engagement, community outreach and information management. In youth services within public librarianship, I have a true professional home. Born and raised in San Francisco, I'm honored to serve in the system that served me since childhood. After being the children's librarian at the Bayview Branch for many years, I am now the Family Engagement Coordinator on the central Youth Services team, where I coordinate system wide programs and partnerships. I'm particularly passionate about STEM programming, outreach to the low income and immigrant communities, and diversity in family programming. I am a proud member of ALSC, APALA, REFORMA, and the Association of Children's Librarians of Northern California.
