Howdy! I’m Erica, and I am a Government Information Analyst in the State and Local Records Management division at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. I started working at TSLAC in April 2019.
Before getting into records management, I received a B.A. in Anthropology and Medieval Studies at Rutgers University in 2010. After spending several years not knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up, I decided to turn my chronic book-reading habit into a career and set out to become a librarian. While working the reference desk at several different public libraries throughout the country, I also worked towards completing a Master of Library and Information Science degree, and I earned my MSLIS from Drexel University in 2017. While in school, I learned that the world of information science was much bigger than I thought, and I realized that I could help people find information in many different settings: libraries, archives, or records management programs!
I am a Certified Archivist (CA) and a Certified Records Manager (CRM).
