Tell us what you do in 50 words or less: I order all materials for the library, reconcile all invoices, maintain serials, and anything else that I am asked to do. Most recently, I have been working on compiling data for the school’s accreditation.
Choose one service that your department provides that you most want the Wheelock community to be aware of: We do allow people to suggest titles to buy and often we do end up buying them. If you have a suggestion they are always considered and if they are not purchased they still help to shape our understanding of the community’s needs.
What is a typical work day like for you? Depends on the day. Usually I am ordering something, whether it be office supplies or books. I also tend to do invoices at least once a day. Otherwise I do not know what I’ll do on any given day until I’ve checked my email and found some urgent message.

When I’m not at work, you can find me… Studying or working on group projects for my Master’s, traveling, or planning a travel adventure.
