Shortly after her arrival at The University of Scranton in late summer 2013, Christine Jerome of Union, New Jersey made her way to the Weinberg Memorial Library seeking a Work Study position. After spending all four years of high school volunteering as the librarian’s assistant, she was anxious to work in a setting where she felt at home and familiar with the job. It’s hard to believe that now she’s been with us for almost four years.
Chris is a Biology major who minors in French. In addition to speaking French, she can speak some Creole too. She is an active member of the United Color Organization (UCO), the Asia Club, the Fencing Club and the Liva Arts Company. Of course she enjoys reading – her favorite genres are history, fantasy and mysteries. A few other pastimes she enjoys are art, music, fitness & health and baking.
At the Circulation Desk, Chris enjoys interacting with the patrons and has gained great customer service skills. She is a pleasant co-worker who is always willing to learn something new and help out wherever needed. She often advises other students to take advantage of the Palci EZBorrow & Interlibrary Loan services. Note: her green thumb is responsible for the thriving plants all over the library. They will miss her too!
After graduation, Chris’s career goal is to work in the healthcare field. She would particularly like to provide healthcare to medically underserved areas, domestic or international. We wish her all the best.
Thank you Chris!
