Joy became our school librarian in 2013.  For many years before that, she worked with youth employment and service learning programs in New York and San Francisco.

She loves learning about all kinds of excellent books to read and learning about research.  She also loves spending time with her family, cooking (trying to make the perfect pizza), and traveling.
