Almost four years ago, Erica Brown came from Baltimore, Maryland, to study Psychology at the University of Scranton. Right away, she came to the library and applied for a workstudy position. After talking to her about her work experience as a resident leader in a nursing home, and hearing her speak so passionately about taking care of people, I could see her pleasant personality and level of patience made her a perfect candidate to work in a customer service position.
Erica enjoys the environment of the library as well as the flexibility of her schedule. If she’s not working a shift at the Circulation Desk, you’ll often find her doing schoolwork here. She is a strong advocate for the library, advising fellow students to “Use the services the library has to offer for studying and researching!”
Erica is an active member of the Psychology Club. She also volunteers at St. Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen and the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter. She enjoys photography, games, outdoor activities, and reading.
Some Erica Fun Facts: her deep fondness and fascination for hippopotami; her 15 tattoos (one of which, you guessed it, is a hippopotamus); her favorite class is Abnormal Psychology and her favorite book/movie is Fight Club.
After graduating in May, Erica will continue to care for the elderly by pursuing a career as a social worker with a focus on gerontology and Alzheimer patients. We wish her all the best!
Thank you Erica!!
