Jillian Vasquez

Evening/Weekend Library Assistant

About Me

I was born in Seattle and come from a proud family of former migrant workers in eastern Washington. I have lived in San Francisco since 2017 and consider it my newfound home. I have an undergraduate degree in Journalism/Public Relations, and a master's degree in Comparative Literature from University College London. I recently completed a residency with Hedgebrook for women-identified writers.

Work

I started at Gleeson Library in December 2021 as the Evening/Weekend Library Assistant after nearly ten years in the arts non-profit sector, most recently with San Francisco Ballet. I have been interested in transitioning to the university library system ever since completing my master's degree, and am thrilled to begin this new chapter with USF.

Interests

In my free time, I write short stories and creative non-fiction exploring the spectrum of Latinidad, identity, and belonging. I also love reading, secondhand bookstores, thrifting, traveling, meditation, and improving my very elementary-level knowledge of Italian.
