I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, & Virginia metropolitan area. I grew up visiting the different museums, going to events on the National Mall, and experiencing the culture that is deeply immersed in city life.

How would you describe your job to other people?

It is my job to help ensure that the Law Library operates efficiently from an administrative standpoint. I serve as a reference point for patrons who visit the Law Library of Congress, as well as staff who have inquiries pertaining to the day-to-day operations of the office.

Why did you want to work at the Law Library of Congress?

I wanted to work at the Law Library to further advance my career in administration. I began working at the Library as an administrative clerk when I was 17 and after garnering enough experience I began to look for opportunities to excel in the administrative field.

What is the most interesting fact you’ve learned about the Law Library of Congress?

I would have to say that the most interesting thing about the Law Library is its employees. It is intriguing to work with so many people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, and many of the staff here have immense experience and institutional knowledge.

What’s something most of your co-workers do not know about you?

I LOVE all things science fiction and comic book-related, from super heroes, to vampires, werewolves, and necromancy.  Anything dealing with the abnormal is such an escape for me.

I’m also a huge fan of country music.
