Jennie Quiñónez-Skinner is passionate about civic engagement and developing diverse leadership. She has over 15 years of experience as a Librarian at California State University, Northridge. Connecting people and resources is how she brings her academic librarian skills from the stacks and into the community. Jennie is the current president of Glendale Latino Association, a board member for the newly formed Glendale Library, Arts, and Culture Trust, a board member for the Glendale Character and Ethics Project, and a member of the Measure GC Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. She is a member and co-founder of the community organizing committee for the annual Glendale Dia de los Muertos Celebration. Jennie is a Southern California native who was born in Long Beach and grew up in San Clemente. She studied at the University of California, San Diego for her undergraduate degree (Bachelor of Arts in Ethnic Studies), and at the University of California, Los Angeles for her graduate degree (Master of Library and Information Studies). She left the beach life for the foothills of Glendale, which she has called home for over 15 years.
She comes from a multi-cultural family. Her mom was born and raised in Pasadena. Her father’s family is from the East Coast. Her parents met at Pasadena City College. She is a 4th generation Mexican-American and grateful that her mom, Linda, is now a Glendale neighbor. Her father, who is an Army Veteran, now lives in Japan with his wife, Yoko. Jennie is a proud tía of two little ones, who reside in Northern California with her brother and his wife. Her family has taught her to appreciate different cultures and make space at the table for everyone.
