  • Bio

    I began working as the Youth Outreach Librarian for the Austin Public Library in January of 2009, and feel so lucky to have found a position that allows me to work in my area of interest in a challenging and stimulating way. I'm committed to helping other librarians wanting to serve incarcerated youth.
