I grew up in Calgary in a very large and close family. We were lucky to be raised by parents who were both avid readers, and who took us to the wonderful Louise Riley Library. It seems fitting that I spend my time as an elementary school librarian. I feel I have the best job in the world! Kids and books, what could be better? Clearly, I love to read, spend time with my family, and I have recently taken up fishing with my daughter, Ellen!
