Web Usability and Design Specialist
Love Library

Two truths and a lie:

  1. I am a grandma.
  2. I can wiggle my nose.
  3. I was head butted by a sheep.
Profile:"Hello world! In my new role as Web Usability and Design Specialist, I am responsible for managing and conducting usability studies of our website. The data we collect will help us fine tune our website design, navigation, content and processes to help meet our user’s needs on the Library website.”

Favorite aspect of position:
"My life goal has always been to be in a position where I can help people. This extends into my career goals. I get a sense of satisfaction when I am able to ask people what they need to achieve their goals for growth, and use that to provide a good experience for a user. It provides me with the opportunity to play a small role in the lives of a multitude of people.”

Likes and interests:
  • In my free time I volunteer for various things, mostly through my church Heritage Presbyterian. I have gone on mission trips helping with cleanup efforts after natural disasters, helped raise funds and participated in the annual CROP walk, teach Sunday School to 3rd ,4th and 5th graders, and volunteer as chair of our Communications Committee.
  • I love spending time with my granddaughter. You really can spoil them and send them back home. It’s awesome!
  • We go camping whenever we get the chance (with a camper of course and yes, it’s still called camping.)
  • When I need to wind down, I pick up my first love, a good book (if I had known my husband when I was about 5, he would have been my first love.)

1: True: I have 3 children (all girls), 1 son-in-law and am a ‘Nana’ to Miss Haileigh. She is 4 years old and often will tell me “it’s time to dance” in the middle of our shopping excursions. I am more than happy to oblige, so if you see a dancing grandma in a store somewhere, it’s probably us. Life is too short not to dance.

2: Lie: I cannot wiggle my nose. I can however wiggle my ears.

3. True: It’s a long story, but the gist of it is, one of our sheep got out of its pen. In the process of trying to catch him, I was able to get him cornered at which time he deduced his only way out was to jump over me. I in turn decided it would be a good idea to catch him as he jumped over me, and we met heads. No worries the sheep was just fine. I however ended up with a broken nose. The best part of the story at the time? When I returned to my office the next day, my coworkers had decorated my office with pictures of sheep quotes like 'Hope you don’t feel too BAAAAD, get better soon' and ‘My BAAAAD.' It’s hard to laugh with a broken nose.
