My name is Jessica Humphries. I am a mixed-race urban Indigenous queer woman; My mother is Irish, Scottish and Welsh, my father Afro-Caribbean, Mi’kmaq, with Métis and Kalinago relations. Currently working on the traditional lands of the K’òmoks Peoples (Courtenay, BC).
I am currently working Customer Service Librarian, Adult Services with the Vancouver Island Regional Libraries.
I hold a BA in Women’s Studies and Art History from the University of Victoria and a Masters in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Washington iSchool.
At the core of my work is the commitment to the communities I am part of by working towards shifting the way knowledge is formulated, (re)defining the way we conceptualize services to library patrons, and moving archives away from static narratives.
In addition, I am active in wellness communities and I am continually shaping my own practice as an indigenous body in fitness, yoga, and foodie practices.
