I have been with Mesa Public Schools for 28 years. I grew up outside of Chicago and attended College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn IL. When I moved on I found my way to Arizona , ASU and MCC. This is my third year here at Fremont Jr. High, but I have worked at Ishikawa, Edison, Hermosa Vista, Wilson and Porter Elementary School libraries. I received my library certification,  my advanced library certification and my school library certification from Mesa Community College.

I have been Married to Mr. Nelson for over 40 years. I have two grown sons who went through Mesa Public Schools and  a grandson who is attending Mesa Public Schools currently. There is no better place to learn!

I love my job in the library! I get to be around young people, books and reading all day long. These are all my favorite things! Please stop by and visit our library anytime. You are always welcome and we would love to show it off!
