I spent my first 22 years in Eugene, Oregon, where I attended the University of Oregon and earned a Bachelor's of Arts in English Literature. I then attended the University of Michigan for a Master's degree in Library & Information Services. My career then took me to the sleepy (except for Friday nights!) town of Athens, Ohio and then to San Diego, California, where I worked at San Diego State University. After 8 years in Southern California, I became weary of the big city and 70-degree perfect day after 70-degree perfect day, so I applied for this job in Boise. I'm really excited to be part of the team here - I can tell already that it's a great group of people who are dedicated, energetic, and creative.
Off work, I like to spend time with my husband and our two energetic dogs. We have a 6-year old rescued pit bull mix named Raisin, and a Vizsla (a Hungarian hunting dog) named Gus, both of whom need to run for at least an hour a day. When the dogs aren't keeping me busy, I like to bake, cook, read trashy mystery novels,watch movies (Netflix is my Best Friend Forever), hike, lift weights at the Student Rec Center, and hang out incognito at the public library.
I look forward to becoming part of the Boise State University community. If you have comments, questions, or suggestions for improvement to the Library Website, please feel free to contact me at elliedworak[at]boisestate.edu
