Welch has a new kid on the block, Carrie Price. Carrie comes to us from the Eisenhower Library and joins our illustrious list of Clinical Informationists.  I asked Carrie about her motivation into the world of librarianship, and what triggered her arrival at our humble Welch Library doorstep. “For a couple of years in college I worked as a Physical Therapy Technician, helping people rehab from orthopedic injuries. I really liked it and the experience has always stuck with me.” Carrie also mentioned that the prospect of working in a high-energy research hospital environment is a challenge she’s looking forward to. “People don’t seem to have a lot of free time here.” She knows the landscape, already she’s speaking like a veteran Informationist.

Carrie’s a graduate of Towson University and………she plays the Cello. Since not everybody I run into plays the Cello, I asked Carrie how much Cello she played. Thinking of course that she played Cello “on the side,” as a little sidelight. But noooooo, Carrie played with the Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra, a volunteer orchestra in Harford County. Oh.  For 3 years. Ohhhhhhh. Previously, Carrie worked at the Friends School and has put some time into the Maryland SPCA. A pet lover! (says the man with 2 dogs and 2 cats). She marveled at how much mentoring and support she’s gotten from her peers, and she’s looking forward to turning that early-getting-your-feet-on-the-ground-learning-curve into a straight line. Also, look for her in a local marathon or two. Better yet, she bikes. Ah-haaaa, now we’re talking. If you see her around the quad, don’t be a stranger.
