I'm a Library Assistant at Multnomah County Library with over 20 years experience in providing technology training support. I have my BS in History and a minor in Judaic Studies from Portland State University and a Masters in Library and Information Science from San Jose State. When not in a library, I can be found on my family's farm, working in the fields and on our social media and website.
