I have been a proud member of the FLOW family since 2018 following a relocation to Windham from Utah.  I am married with two school-aged children: Abby and JP.  I am a Spanish teacher and an award-winning professional balloon artist.  Many of the local children and their families know me as, ¨the balloon lady.¨  I joined FLOW to meet new people and to satisfy my desire to volunteer.  Being a member of the FLOW family has been a very rewarding experience and I am grateful to be a part of such a diverse team of individuals working together toward a common goal: to support the Nesmith library.

I have lived in Windham since 2012 and have always been a big fan of Nesmith Library. When I arrived, I could scarcely believe that we had a library open seven day a week, staffed with librarians who could get anything I wanted, at any time!  I love the library, the librarians, and the commitment they show to the Windham community.  Serving FLOW is one small way I can return the favor.

Ten years ago, I moved to Windham from Haverhill, MA where I raised three boys and have a grandson. As an avid reader and educator, one of the first things I did was get a Nesmith library card. After reading a F.L.O.W. brochure, I knew I wanted to volunteer to contribute to the community.  However, since I was a teacher and union president, I had little time available until I retired in 2018 after teaching for 31 years.  A Windy Indy article advertised for a secretary and that’s when I enthusiastically joined F.L.O.W. I am blessed and fortunate to be a part of the Nesmith family and to be able to contribute to the Town of Windham community.

I’m the one who checks your membership every time you come to a major event sponsored by FLOW, like the Book Fairs, Strawberry Festival, or special children’s events.  Every time you support FLOW with your membership dues or generous contributions, that allows FLOW to enhance the library’s ability to provide programming or improvements that fall outside its normal operating budget.

I fell in love with the public library when I was six years old. There are always new things to discover in the library. When I saw that there was a need at Nesmith Library, I decided to help out. If you are interested in volunteering at Nesmith, please feel free to reach out.
