Before coming to Willamette in 2011, Bev Ecklund worked as a reference librarian at Chemeketa Community College and the Woodburn Public Library. She also worked at the Salem Public Library for several years in various roles, including driving the Bookmobile and presenting children's storytimes in both Spanish and English. Ecklund was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. She received a bachelor's degree in Spanish from Western Oregon University and a master's degree in library science from Texas Woman's University.

At Willamette, Ecklund is the Associate Director of Career Planning and Development, assisting law students and graduates in finding legal employment both before and after graduation, as well as helping them grow professionally.
