Kathleen Bloomingdale

Library Associate

Kathleen has spent her career at LSU Health Shreveport focused on providing the best support to those departments she has served.  At the Health Sciences Library, Kathleen as a Coordinator of Academic Area does an amazing job at helping the faculty and staff stay on budget and project targets. However, in the past year, Kathleen stepped up to help with computer services in the library that needed to be done that were outside of her standard job duties. Taking on these extra duties, greatly assisted the library in making sure that the students, staff and faculty could utilize computer resources in the library at a time when staffing was unexpectedly low. While voluntarily doing these additional duties, she continued to be enthusiastic, cheery and bring heart to the library. She is the epitome of employee excellence and service.
