Wellness Wednesday Tip- Take a moment to express gratitude and appreciation towards your coworkers. Day to day we are so often focused on our personal to-do lists, deadlines, and what we need from someone that we forget to recognize the incredible gift each person brings to our work environment.
As a large campus, we don’t always get the opportunity to meet all of our fellow peers and colleagues. The Wellbeing Collaborative would like to introduce you one of your colleagues:
Department/Location on campus: I am a Health Sciences Librarian at the Spokane Academic Library.
Years you have worked for WSU: I was an adjunct faculty for WSU for about three years before coming to the Spokane campus in April.
Degree/Background: I have a Master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences from University of Wisconsin-Madison and a B.A. in Temperate and Tropical Rainforest Ecology from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA
What do you enjoy about your job: I work with amazing people and I get to work with very dedicated and wonderful students. Working at this campus is the best!
Hometown: Western Washington – I grew up in Seattle and Tacoma
Hobbies/Interests: I am a librarian so, of course, reading. Additionally, I enjoy backpacking and foraging for fungi. I’ve been trying to teach myself Danish-it’s not going well. If you have any tips I’d love to hear them!
