Meet Manda

Hello! My name Manda. I am originally from a small town in NE Ohio but currently live in West Virginia with my husband, Tyler, dog, Carly (Simon) and four cats:  Jerry (Garcia), Joni (Mitchell), Liza (Minnelli) and Dolly (Parton). I studied Archaeology at Warsaw University in Warsaw, Poland and graduated with my Bachelors degree in 2015. After 5 years in Poland I moved back to Ohio and worked as a library specialist at my local public library. Not long after that I decided to go back to school for my Master's in Library and Information Science with a focus on museums and archives at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. While in graduate school I began working at a community college library, had an internship at the county archives and volunteered at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. After graduation in 2018 I moved into a position as a Reference and Instruction Librarian at the same community college and continued to volunteer. During this time, I met my (now) husband, Tyler and we lived together in Cleveland for several years. I even converted him from a Titans fan to a Browns fan!

In 2021, my husband and I finally were able to have our wedding and then immediately moved to WV for his job. I worked at the WV Library Commission for 7 months until I accepted this position here at CSU in April 2022!
