Welcome to our first installment of Getting to Know You, where we interview a member of our Muse Law Library staff. In this post we’re getting to know Stacy Price, Muse Law Library’s Operations Manager.
Can you tell us about your background?
I grew up in New Jersey, and graduated from Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Va., with a degree in English. I worked for 20 years in communications and development, at non-profits, associations, and in secondary education. During this time, my husband and I were married in Washington, D.C., and moved to Richmond in 2000. In 2012, I accepted a position in undergraduate Admission at the University of Richmond, and transitioned to the Law Library in 2016.
How would you describe your current work?
I handle many different operations issues for the law library, including building and space coordination, event planning, and other logistics. I relish working with Law students and helping them feel “at home” in the Library, and I believe that our assigned carrel program is one of the Library’s best student benefits. I also love to plan great parties.
What do you like best about work at the Muse Law Library?
I value working at University of Richmond for many reasons—great community, beautiful campus, delicious food—but I especially adore the fact that so many of my colleagues have worked here for 10 or 20 years, and they exude their own UR love every day.
Tell us about your favorite way to spend time outside of work.
I cherish the time I spend with my family–my husband, Kevin, is from Fargo, N.D., and we have two daughters, 18 and 15, five dogs, and a rabbit. I also love to cook, volunteer with animal rescue, and craft. The best trip I’ve taken so far in life was a magical tour of Ireland with my family, but I also adore our family cabin trip to Maine each summer. I read two or three books a week, so I enjoy browsing fiction and non-fiction in the Law Library and at Boatwright, and my phone is always full of ebooks.
What have you read lately?
I tend to go through phases focused on certain genres. Lately I’ve been into British mysteries and biographies with strong themes of redemption.
