Finding the Right Fit

Student Staff Manager, Bastyr University Library

I briefly attended UW Seattle in the mid-nineties.  But two years of school didn't give me a clear career direction, so I joined the fulltime workforce working in emergency medicine.  I joined the Navy as a medic in 1999 and served until 2004.  I took advantage of the GI bill to finish my bachelor's degree, and discovered the IAS program was a great fit.  It was just what I was looking for.  After graduation I worked in the UW Bothell Writing Center where I became interested in librarianship.  I'm currently working at the Bastyr Library, where I am responsible for special projects and student staff.
