I have a BA in Art History from Mary Baldwin College, and studied fine art at both Savannah College of Art & Design and Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts. I received my Master of Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina and I have worked in libraries for over twenty years.
I am a professional librarian. I have instructed students in information organization and research techniques, technical proficiency, and early childhood literacy.
