Wake County Public Libraries
I have been in libraries for 14 years, starting out in Smithfield, VA and then moving to Wake County Public Libraries in 2006. I began my career and a Youth Services Librarian, which was a position I held for 6 years. I moved onto become a Youth Services Manager in 2012 and an Adult Services Manager in 2014. I currently work at the East Regional branch in Knightdale, where I oversee a department of 10 and on the system level, a group of 8. My focus is on Career & Education programs for adults.
