Born and raised in Wadsworth, OH, Dr. Houston has lived in Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Nebraska, in addition to spending many summers in Dublin, Ireland. At Muskingum, she teaches First Year Seminar, a library research course, and a course on archives, which has also included a study abroad experience in Ireland. Before becoming a librarian, she taught English, Irish literature, and Women's and Gender Studies, infusing all with as much pop culture as possible.
