Fun facts: My eyes change colors depending on what color shirt I’m wearing!

About Kelley: My husband, our 7 year old son, and I live in beautiful Boulder, CO. When I’m not studying, working, or volunteering, I am outside enjoying the magnificent scenery. I have worked in public libraries in different paraprofessional positions for 10+ years and would be more than happy to return to them after graduation. However, I’m keeping my career options open as I am nearing the finish line. I am currently working my 2nd semester as a Collaborate Assistant with San Jose State as well as volunteering what free time I can locate serving in the vacant School Librarian position at my son’s elementary school. In addition to serving on the ALASC Board of Directors, I serve on the Board of Directors for the SJSU Special Libraries Association Student Group as well as the Executive Committee for the SJSU ASIS&T Student Group. Meeting new people, making connections, and networking is one of the greatest benefits to being active and involved in student and professional organizations. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone!
