I’m the daughter of a minister, raised in the Midwest bread bowl.  After high school I joined the Air Force and served as a Mission Controller, attained several FAA licenses, and graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a B.S. in Professional Aeronautics.  My husband and I homeschooled our 2 children and eventually moved to Franklin County in 2007 where I began working part-time at the Franklin County Public Library.  For the last 4 years I have been the full-time Teen Librarian for the Library District and am pursuing a Master of Library Science degree.
