Welcome Katherine Sullivan

Submitted by Cynthia Porter

Our apologies go out to Katherine Sullivan, a new CABL member we are late in introducing to the group.  Kathy has been working at the ASU Polytechnic campus since 2008 as a Library Assistant.  She is a retired nurse, originally from the Boston, Massachusetts, area.  She has lived in Arizona for 20 years and has three grown children.  Her first library job was at Westwood High School in Mesa.  She is currently enrolled in the School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS)  at the University of Arizona.

Kathy brings such a great knowledge base along with her big smile, and eagerness to help a wide range of ASU customers receive the highest level of service.  She is meant to be a health sciences librarian.  We are glad to welcome her to our group.
