Meet Me Monday: Jennifer Ortiz, Network of the National Library of Medicine South Central Region

Posted by on July 20th, 2020

We are thrilled to welcome the newest member of the RML team, Jennifer Ortiz, who will serve as Consumer Health Coordinator!

Jennifer Ortiz stands smiling in front of a harbor.

Jennifer Ortiz has had a love of libraries since she was nine years old. She attempted to have her younger brother check out books from the family room bookshelves. That library was a complete failure, but she didn’t give up on her dream to help people find the information they seek and eventually graduated with her MLS from the University of North Texas. She has worked at UNT Dallas, the Dallas Public Library, and as the Outreach and Collection Management Librarian for the DeSoto Public Library, located on the outskirts of Dallas. She is also involved with the Texas Library Association and served as the 2019-2020 chair for the New Members Round Table.

She will focus her efforts on consumer health, outreach, the NNLM Citizen Science and Public Libraries initiatives, membership and more.

Contact her directly at Jennifer.Ortiz@unthsc.edu .
