About My Book Life
All my life I’ve been an avid reader. Sure I fell off the bandwagon a bit in college, being an English Literature major will have that effect on a girl, but since 2011, I have averaged 20,000 or more pages read each year. I love discovering new books and new authors. I would screech my love for books from the top of the rooftops if only my neighbors wouldn’t call the cops.
About My Volunteer Life
My love for books has lead me on some exciting adventures and I am actively involved in the literary world in eastern Iowa.
I am one of the founders and was a chief organizer of Imagine Other Worlds with Authors (I.O.W.A.) , a multi-author signing event held in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
I am the social media coordinator and webmaster for ICON, Iowa’s longest-running science fiction and fantasy convention held in eastern Iowa.
About My Work Life
I am a master planner. I did not go to college to become a project manager, I just fell into that profession and it has been my heart and soul professionally for over 15 years. I love it when a good plan, a good process and easy-to-use technology come together. I’m like a kid on Christmas Day when these three things seamlessly work together to make everyone’s life easier.
