Patricia L. Hernandez

Texas A&M- Corpus Christi
Student Success Librarian
Corpus Christi, Texas
I have technically worked in libraries since I was 13. I worked in my school libraries at 13 and again at 17. When it was time to find a job while attending college, where did I turn? The library of course!! I was employed as a student assistant in the Technical Services department. After graduating, I spent a year working off and on as a children's educator at my local Art Museum...but I was destined to return to my library home. I was hired at a public library as their Children's Librarian and loved it!! I loved working with children and seeing their eyes light up as they became engrossed in a story. After a year, I returned to working in an academic library and was employed as the Government Documents Processor. Unable, to fight it any longer, I worked on and received my MLS through Texas Woman's University. I was then promoted to Student Success Librarian. I have worked at mu current library for 10 years and have actively been involved in the events and promotion for the library since the beginning. I currently aim to improve my social media, graphic design, and promotion skills. I additionally seek new opportunities to build on my instruction skills. On a personal note, I'm a huge comic book fan, I love horror movies, am fascinated by the psychology of serial killers (sounds weird, I know, but I'm normal, I swear), and spend my leisure times reading, playing video games, or hanging out with my family.
