My name is Kim Humberd, and I am the new Learning Resource Center Manager at Strayer University’s Allentown campus in PA. I got my MLIS from Dominican University in January 2010, and have been looking for a job since then. My husband and I like to cook, and play with our dog (Scout) and our cat (Bellatrix). I also started a book club with some of my friends, and we have a wonderful time reading and discussing books! My husband, Luke, and I are very excited to be moving to PA, because his family all live there and he hasn’t lived close to them for many years.
