About Me

    Hi, I am Mrs. Urtz, the ILES Media Specialist.  Although I've worked in libraries since 1995, this year will be my 3rd at ILES.  I am thrilled to be here!

    I currently live in NC, but due to my husband's military career I've lived in NY, MS, VA, NC, CA, and Italy!  My husband retired from the Navy last year and we have settled in Waxhaw.  We share our home with two fur-babies. We adopted our dog in NC, but our cat is Italian! 

    When not in the media center, I love to line dance, read, visit used-book stores, and spend time with my family.  Recently, I started taking ice-skating lessons and I am happy to say that I haven't fallen once!

    I truly enjoy working in the school system and believe there is no other place I'd be as happy!
