English Literature, Theatre, and Romance Languages and Literature
I grew up in South East Michigan, I lived in the UK where I did my masters in English, and I moved to Philadelphia in 2013 when I joined Villanova's Falvey Memorial Library.
I'm a pop culture junkie and enjoy talking about film and television just as much as I enjoy conversations about books.
In keeping with the librarian stereotype I have three standard issue shelter cats, but fear not, having been raised with dogs I'm an equal opportunity animal lover.
