I spent 15 years as a librarian in elementary schools before deciding to take a break and stay home with my daughter. After a couple of years of being a SAHM, I had the opportunity to apply for and accept (!!!) my DREAM JOB. For years, I taught Children’s Literature at the University of South Carolina as an Adjunct Instructor for the School of Library and Information Science. In August 2018, I started teaching for SLIS full-time and I also lead Cocky’s Reading Express. I am passionate about the importance of reading and libraries. I am married to Marty Fort. He owns the Irmo Music Academy, Columbia Arts Academy, and the Lexington School of Music.
I enjoy cooking, Barre3, yoga, and reading. My favorite things to read are funny memoirs and young adult novels. I LOVE picture books, especially those about dogs and families.
