What tasks do you do for the TTU Law Library?

I work the circulation desk. I check in and out books and I help patrons find the material they are looking for.

What is your favorite thing about working at the TTU Law Library?

I love the relaxed nature of my work. It’s low stress, which allows me to study for class and enjoy working the desk.

What is one thing about the law library that current and prospective students should know?

The law library has so much more content than you realize. The library has a ton of resources that are useful for any legal practice, whether it be criminal, water, patents, anything.

Blue sky. #BestBurgerEver.

What hobbies or activities do you like to do outside the law library?

I play a lot of music in my free time. I’ve been playing the guitar and the banjo for over 10 years. It’s hard to feel sad and stressed about law school when you’re plucking a few happy chords.
