Jenn joined RGS in the Fall of 2017 when she had recently moved to Santa Fe from Ojai, California with her husband and cats. I feel fortunate to be a member of the RGS community and practice my profession with young children, a lifelong goal of mine. Most of my 17 years of experience as a professional librarian has been within independent schools. While in Ojai, I served as the Library Director at The Thacher School for ten years. As well, I have worked as a librarian at the Crossroads School for the Arts and Sciences in Santa Monica, California and served as the Children's Librarian for the State of Oklahoma. While in grad school, I worked for three years as a librarian asst. for the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. In my spare time, I enjoy all things books, visual and performing arts related and bird watching. Most special to me are the times I get to spend at the Edinburgh Book Festival where I am introduced to a whole host of children's literature and authors not as widely known in the states. This past summer I spent the night in Gladstone's library in Wales and it was quite a treat!
