YOUmedia Staff Bios
Deanie is delighted to be working in Sulzer’s YOUmedia. She enjoys memoirs, summer outdoor concerts, good coffee, board games, Lego video games, the nerdfighter community, camping, attempting to improve her art skills and always appreciates hyperbole. Initially a music major, Deanie found her way into library school after working as a middle school teacher in Ohio and Chicago. She received a bachelor of science in middle childhood education from Kent State University and a master's of library and information science from University of Illinois. Often described as a jack-of-all trades, Deanie dabbles in various areas. She routinely discovers new areas of interest, including contemporary young adult books, hands-on and digital making, improving video editing skills (especially for vlogging), and most recently self-teaching Photoshop and Illustrator to take her art digital. She loves chatting about all things young adult and is happy to talk about her favorite YouTubers: Vlogbrothers, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, SciShow or The Brainscoop. DFTBA.
Julie is a Chicago native who grew up going to CPL and basically never left. She's been a librarian for eight years in children's, adult and teen services, and in many different neighborhoods of the city. She originally thought she wanted to teach high school English, but quickly realized that being a librarian is way more fun. Reading has been her main hobby/diversion/interest since she was a child, and she feels very lucky to work with books and readers every day. In addition to reading all kinds of books, she is passionate about cooking, baking, playing board games, watching films, and learning about history and many other random things.
