Role: MMPL Children’s Programmer & Assistant Librarian

Favourite book: It’s so hard to choose a favourite book! But right now the one I keep coming back to is Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. I love her writing style and her approach to nature, Indigenous learning and storytelling.

Favourite library memory: I’m new to the Mississippi Mills Public Library, so most of my favourite memories so far are the ones leading Baby Time and Toddler Time. It’s so fun to engage young and future readers. Some of my earliest memories are of going to a Storytime equivalent with my Mom, when I was a kid. It’s fun that now I’ve come full circle.

Fun fact: I was a competitive swimmer when I was younger, and competed on my varsity team at university.
