Both Debra and Jenneffer are public librarians working on health and wellness projects for the NCLA Leadership Institute. Jenneffer started a weekly session for adults called Mindful Mondays, where she leads a different guided meditation each week, starting with a stretching routine. A one-time regular practitioner of meditation, she realized that in order to provide this service for others, she needed to fulfill those needs for herself. Debra is passionate about health and wellness. She has collaborated with her county wellness committee, a nutritionist, and her community to provide a variety of health and wellness opportunities and programs for staff and patrons. She is using data about her county in order to target programming that addresses health and wellness concerns.
