Biography

Lana came to Taylor as a freshman in 2001 with a well-thought-out plan for her life. But God's plans are better than ours, and she ended up learning so much from the librarians in Zondervan Library that she decided to pursue a career in librarianship. When she finished grad school, a position opened up here among her mentors, and she joined them in 2007 as a colleague. She has enjoyed her time working with students, faculty, and staff since then, and her greatest joy in her work is helping students achieve their best academically.

Her family includes her husband, Kyle; their three adorable children: Parker, Piper, and Porter; and the family cat, Quincy.

Manages library operations and the Zondervan Library building.
