Hobbies of Some LWLC Staff

Here are favorite hobbies of 5 LWLC staff members: 

Evelyn Bowen, Operations Manager

“My plants bring me so much joy and happiness and give me a sense of accomplishment.  In the summer, I spend time with them every day whether it's watering, trimming, or just admiring them.   It does take time, dedication, responsibility, and research, but it's such a great hobby. I love it!!"

Neil Foulger, Electronic Resources / Serials Services Librarian

"My dining room walls exhibit some items from my post card collection. It's nice to look at places I either visited or have plans to visit at some point."

 Dr. Janice Franklin, LWLC Dean

"I enjoy playing Scrabble to relax and visit with friends. Although I don’t play often, I enjoy the competition and the opportunity to build my vocabulary."

Dr. Natasha Jenkins, Interim Associate Director for Public and Technical Services
"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."
Jessica Platt, Education Doctoral Librarian

"I love doing yoga, and I practice every chance I get. It makes me stronger, increases my patience, and helps relieve stress."
