How did you come to work at Rediscovered Books?
An abundance of luck, perfect timing, and years of being a loyal customer who read voraciously. I applied at the end of the summer in 2017 and my interest in graphic design and past photography experience made me a good fit for the store's emerging need for someone to do more of our marketing and social media.

How did you come to work at Rediscovered Books?

I was a customer first, coming in when Rediscovered first opened up on the bench. Later, as a storyteller I talked with Laura and Bruce about doing performances there, story times and picture book readings. In 2016 when I had come off of a tour with Idaho Theater for Youth, I reached out to see if there was any open spot for a bookseller and was hired on in June.
