Hello! My name is Ciara Troitno and I am the Media and Student Services Associate. As an alumni of J.P. Knapp, I am so excited to be back!
After graduating from Knapp in 2016, I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor's in Biology and a minor in History as well as from College of the Albemarle with an Associate's in Science. I am currently working on my Master's in History from Old Dominion University. At East Carolina I found that history and books in general are my passions and I love being in libraries and interacting with students. My favorite period of history is the Atlantic World from the 18th to 19th century, but I can talk just about anything related to history! Being a lover of history, I am an avid reader and my tastes vary far and wide. My own personal collection of books sits at about 250 volumes deep and I am always looking to pick up new titles to expand it.
Besides history and books, I am an ethusiastic Hockey fan with my favorite teams being the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Carolina Hurricanes! When I get free time, I try to either go to hockey games, spend time outdoors with family and friends, build Lego sets, or watch tv shows like The Office, The Witcher, Vikings, Outerbanks, and Avatar.
Please don't hestitate to contact me!
