My Story

I knew I wanted to be at Warren Wilson pretty much from the moment I stepped on campus. The rich natural beauty, the evidence of experiential learning, and the commitment to community engagement were all so exciting at the outset, and once I sat and spoke with students I knew this was the place for me. As a librarian, my job is in many ways only as interesting as the students I work with. At Warren Wilson I found students deeply engaged in inquiry, with passionate questions about real world issues. And as my interest in documentary video production has grown, I’ve had the privilege of teaching students another way to document their learning, whether via films about the history of Appalachian craft or species threat in the Smokey Mountains.
