The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

Virtual Convocation


Current residence: Farmington, NM, US

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

I enjoy my life as a Librarian. By obtaining my education I guarantee that my community has a fully accredited Librarian defending their choices to read.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My husband and colleagues. They read and corrected everything that I turned in. Without them I would not have reached as high as I did.

I plan to use my degree to:

Continue supporting my community at the Farmington Public Library.

Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:

A life outside of education.
