Meet our coaches…..as many of you know, our CMLE staff is small, and sometimes the needs are big! Jonathan and John are willing and excited to help me read and comment on the blogs of participants in the 23 Mobile Things program. Be nice please, they are total volunteers! Here are a few fun facts about these guys….
Jonathan Carlson is the Science Librarian at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University. He received his MALIS from UW-Madison and MS in Forest Ecology and Management from Michigan Tech, although he is a Gustie at heart. He enjoyed volunteering, having participated in Lutheran Volunteer Corps in Minneapolis and Peace Corps in Tanzania, and most recently has served as staff person on an Alternative Spring Break trip working with Habitat for Humanity in Oklahoma. You’ll often find him reading a good book, cleaning his aquariums, or enjoying the outdoors.
John Meyerhofer was a math major at St. John’s University (MN) and is currently in the MLIS program at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. He grew up in Zumbrota MN, is the proud father of two boys, and is a stay at home dad. John is an avid reader; his favorite book is Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien. He has lots of other hobbies, many indicate he is an active guy! He has hiked to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park in Utah this past summer. He likes to downhill ski – skied Big Sky MT last winter – once skied in Austrian Alps! Last but not least, it appears John is a music junkie. According to John, ” I love all kinds of music from classical to contemporary, Bach to the Beatles, Chopin to Coldplay, Wagner to Wilco.” You can find John on Twitter at @JRMeyerhofer
