I am a native of Scott City and serve as the museum and gallery Program Director for the El Quartelejo Museum and Jerry Thomas Gallery & Collection. I have spent 25 years in school adminstration, public relations, and library sciences, which has included serving as an aide to the Chancellor at University System of New Hampshire, as Public Relations and Adminstrative Assistant to the Headmaster at Portsmouth Christian Academy in New Hampshire, and as a children's librarian, grant writer, and public advocate here in Scott County, Kansas.
I graduated from Scott Community High School in 1989 and attended the University of Kansas and the University of New Hampshire where I graduated with a degree in Communications & Public Advocacy. I received my Kansas Public Library Certification in 2004 from the State Library of Kansas and Emporia State University. My husband and I have three children, and we love our heritage in Scott City.
