What do you like most about working in the Cornette Library? The best part about working in the library is having the freedom to be creative. I get to craft events and activities, as well as teach in a supportive and collaborative environment. Plus, I have the best co-workers.

What is your favorite book(s)/author? Winter: Notes from Montana by Rick Bass. All of the books by Rick Bass. All of them.

What is your favorite local attraction? It's a toss-up between Tex Randall and Furr's Buffet.

Rules to live by: "If it's wild to your own heart, protect it. Preserve it. Love it. And fight for it, and dedicate yourself to it, whether it's a mountain range, your wife, your husband , or even (god forbid) your job. It doesn't matter if it's wild to anyone else: if it's what makes your heart sing, if it's what makes your days soar like a hawk in the summertime, then focus on it. Because for sure, it's wild, and if it's wild, it'll mean you're still free. No matter where you are." —Rick Bass

You might be surprised to know that I: hate cheese but still eat it at every opportunity, just in case.
