Jenne (she, her/hers), Ontario born and Nova Scotian educated, I moved to Prince George and found a community I now call home. I am a mother who regularly visits and benefits from the library services, programs, books, and safe spaces. I experience rich nostalgia when entering the library; my mother proudly worked in our community library for her entire working career. I remember reading in cozy nooks and studying scattered papers on Titanic tables, all while enjoying the quiet solitude. I am a Registered, Community Occupational Therapist with 12 years experience along the healthcare continuum. I support residents of Prince George and area with challenges that impact their ability to perform desired, everyday activities that requires access and interaction with our community. I bring lived-experienced of integration and quality improvement and resulting resilience. My personal interests and lived-experience focus on sensory processing challenges with my daughter, she guides me to see and feel the environment differently. The books offered by the library contribute to my personal growth as a human; as I grow into motherhood, unpack systemic racism as a white person, and learn more about myself. For me the library is more than the books on the shelves, it is a safe haven, a resource for learning and growing, and a place to bring people together. I am delighted for the opportunity to contribute to the Prince George Public Library Board and our community.
