Meet a Mobilizer – Krista Jensen, York University

Greetings! I’m Krista Jensen, the Knowledge Mobilization Officer at York University. I have been with the KM Unit here at York since April of 2006. Before that I was in the non-profit, special library world. I have a Master of Information Studies with a specialization in Library Studies from the University of Toronto and a BA in Religion and Culture from Wilfrid Laurier University. Moving from the library world into the world of KM has been a great opportunity for me to use my information services skills in new and innovative ways.
Some of my favourite things to do when I’m not mobilizing knowledge are- reading, I especially enjoy mysteries and graphic novels; listening to music, my partner Neil and I have well over 400 CDs from pretty much every musical genre; going to the ballet, opera, live theatre and concerts; and one of my biggest passions in life is traveling. Neil and I just got back from a 2 week stay in Italy, where we visited Venice (you can see us having a very expensive lunch on the Canale dei Greci below), Florence, Lucca, the Cinque Terre and Tuscany, where we stayed on a farm where they grew their own grapes and olives. Not sure where we’ll be going next but I enjoy the planning almost as much as the trip itself so I’ll have lots of fun dreaming of possibilities.
