Porsche, a native Missourian, growing up along the Missouri River in Napoleon, MO, holds a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Wisconsin, and she began working at the St. Louis Mercantile Library since November 2016 as the Digital Project Manager of “The John Mason Peck Collection” Digitization Project, funded by the Missouri State Library Digital Imaging Grant.  Her extensive experience in creating and maintaining historical and digital collections combined with her love of local river history allowed her to be selected as the fifth curator of the Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterways Library and the third curator to hold the Special Collections post in the past 31 years.
