I grew up in Hawaii and New Jersey. I was an elementary school teacher for a short time before I became a librarian. I have been a youth services librarian for 15 years. My three kids keep me busy. We try to spend as much time outdoors as we can at different playgrounds and parks. One of my favorite places in Tallahassee is Lake Ella. I love to walk around the lake and people watch. I love to play tennis. My favorite children's author is Eric Carle!
