What is your job title?
  Circulation Desk Student Assistant
In what section or unit of Kinlaw Library do you work?
   I work at the Circulation Desk.
What is your student job in a nutshell?
 I'm the first face people see when they walk in the Library.  I answer questions for them or direct them elsewhere if I can't help them with their problem.  I also check books in and out to patrons.  I also do other little jobs like dusting and making lots of coffee!
What are you working on right now?
  Right now I am sitting at the main desk filling out this Q & A about my job.  I pause every once in awhile to sell coffee to a patron or give out keys to study rooms.
How long have you been at Kinlaw Library?
    Ever since I was a wee Freshman 2 1/2 years ago.
Have you held any other jobs with Asbury University?
  Yes.  I worked in the cafeteria and I currently also work in the office in McCreless.
Do you have a favorite accomplishment at Kinlaw Library?
   One time I stacked an entire box full of chocolate caramel coffee creamers on a single shelf of the display on the coffee cart.  It was glorious.
What is your major, and intended date of completion?
  Art Education in Spring 2017.
What career/s are you interested in?
   My goal right now is to become an independent art teacher.  Being an undersea photographer isn't out of the question either.
What are your passions or interests outside of work and school?
   I love to play guitar and travel.  Often at the same time.
What is the last book you read, or the last book you loved?
  I started reading A Series of Unfortunate Events over the summer.  Every good thing I'd heard about the series was true.
