Online and Data Services Librarian/Senior Editor
Trevecca Nazarene University/Randall House Pub

The Association of Christian Librarians has made remarkable impact in my work as a librarian both in professional development and professional contacts through the years. I want ACL to continue to cultivate those opportunities for librarians. I'm particularly concerned with retention of new members and recognition of our volunteers. I have a heart for librarians who serve small institutions with small budgets, but I also understand the challenges of larger libraries and staffs.‚Äč
