Informally, Dedicated In-House Cat Photographer

My love of books is a constant in my life. As a child, I wandered out to the woods on the family farm and read (I never wandered too far, though, because I have no sense of direction). I majored in English at Luther College. Following graduation, I worked as a journalist at Decorah Newspapers for six years and as a teen librarian and social media manager at Cresco Public Library for 12 years. I am excited to continue my career journey at Dragonfly Books.  I also work as a freelance writer for the Cresco Times Plain Dealer and volunteer on the Public Relations Committee for the Humane Society of Northeast Iowa. I am a social media and article-writing volunteer for singer/songwriter Todd Rundgren's Spirit of Harmony Foundation and enjoy the opportunity to promote the foundation during his Chicago or Minneapolis tour stops. As a photographer, I specialize in pictures of Northeast Iowa scenery and of my extremely handsome tabby cat, Dibs.
