Hobbies of Some LWLC Staff

Here are favorite hobbies of 4 LWLC staff members: 

Ericka Dudley, Access Services Librarian

"I like to consider myself a 'plant mom' because I love to collect and care for plants. Not only are plants therapeutic, but growing them helps individuals with patience and gratitude."

Neil Foulger, Electronic Resources / Serials Services Librarian

"Over the past ten years, I've become more knowledgeable about (and thus enjoy) the different music styles and popular songs from 1936-1961. Thank you, Alexander Street Press Music Package!".

Monica Hodge, Science Reference Librarian 
""In my spare time, I enjoy traveling. Although the pandemic has put a damper on this hobby, I'm looking forward to hopefully traveling to another country in the future that I haven't visited." 
Natasha Jenkins, Information Literacy Librarian
"I enjoy arts and crafts like painting, floral arrangements, photography, and home decor.  I've been relatively creative all my life, so I use my free time to create pretty things for others to enjoy."
Yannick Kouaho, Digitization Technician

"One of my favorite hobbies is playing video games. I'm not addicted to it, but I play quite often. Gaming helps me relax and have fun. I spend some of my free time playing games online with other gamers. I enjoy playing games like Fifa 2021, Nba 2k21, COD, and many other titles on my new Xbox Series X."
