Jasmine as a Librarian

“Her approach is truly teen-centered.”

I have worked with Jasmine at the Cherry Hill Public Library since 2015. She has accomplished a lot in her time at CHPL, but it has been especially exciting to see her make outstanding use of her knowledge of library services, systems and teen development to completely innovate Teen Services for the Cherry Hill Public Library. Her approach is truly teen-centered, and she has a prodigious ability to foster teen participation in every area of library services, from creating displays to creating programming to generating content for our social media & e-mail newsletters. She is also incredibly personable and is always creating connections with teens, children and adults alike.

“She’s creative and a great team member.”

What an asset to the library profession Jasmine is! Curious, engaging, well-read, detail-oriented, passionate – Jasmine brings all of these traits and more to whatever library work she does. As teen librarian, Jasmine is able to not only create programming that brings this hard-to-reach population into the library, but also develop ways for teens to help build their library and reach their personal goals. Her music programming allowed families and other members of the South Jersey community to experience professional-level vocalists and instrumentalists for free in their own town. She’s creative and a great team member. It was a joy to work with Jasmine.

Jasmine as a Musician

“Jasmine’s gorgeous soprano voice is powerful, expressive, and soaring.”

Jasmine is a joy and pleasure to work with. I’ve collaborated with Jasmine in two capacities: accompanying her on piano, and inviting her to give group voice lessons to my cantors. She brings so much enthusiasm and wisdom to both her performance and instruction. Jasmine’s gorgeous soprano voice is powerful, expressive, and soaring. When coaching others, she is patient, explains her expectations clearly, and provides specific and meaningful feedback. If you are looking for a professional vocalist or skilled instructor, Jasmine would be the perfect choice!

“…her singing made the Mass a much more moving experience.”

Her voice is so beautiful! Both my husband and I agree that her singing made the Mass a much more moving experience, especially her meditation [song] after communion. Also, I love to watch her sing because she is so expressive. Please let her know how much we appreciate her sharing her gift with us.
