What do you like most about working in the Cornette Library? My "work family" here at the library. Every last person here is a living example of kindness, professionalism, good humor and trustworthiness that makes the library a place I am proud to work in.

What is your favorite book(s)/author? The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is my favorite book series, and though he never wrote a book as such, the various writings of St. Francis of Assisi make him my favorite author.

What is your favorite local attraction? The Cracker Barrel. I love the eats, and all of the fun and eclectic merchandise in the store.

Rules to live by: "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle." "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

You might be surprised to know that I: love to go storm-chasing. I've grabbed a few awesome pictures over the course of ten years or so, and had a few rather hairy encounters with severe weather up-close and personal.
