Mrs. Lawler has been the assistant librarian at Drew since the Fall of 2021. Before working at Drew, she was a stay-at-home mother for several years, volunteering in school libraries for over ten years. Prior to staying home with her children, she spent seventeen years managing various medical practices. She has always loved reading and libraries have always been a favorite place for her to spend time. She is a huge fan of the author Jason Reynolds.
