Davis Centre Library, Ext. 31381
Currently in her 2nd term in Western's Master of Library and Information Science program, this is Sarah's first experience working in a library. Prior to starting at Western she worked for a few years in social services and employment services.
"One of the reasons I chose to do my MLIS at Western is for their Outreach and Programming specialization," Sarah says. "I really enjoyed working with the public in my last workplaces and I view the library as a place where librarians have the opportunity to enrich the lives of their community members, through continued learning but also as a community space."
Outside of work, Sarah enjoys biking, running, and home-renovating.
A warm welcome to Sarah!
