On Tuesday, June 11, 2013 the White House will honor twelve people as museum and library “Champions of Change.” According to the White House’s official press release, the “event will focus on libraries and museums who make a difference for their neighborhoods and for our nation.” We’re extremely proud to share that Jamie Hollier, a DPLA Board member, is part of that distinguished group of museum and library innovators.
In addition to serving as a member of the DPLA Board of Directors, Jamie Hollier is a project manager, entrepreneur, and consultant who is passionate about technology and using it to create stronger communities. Hollier is the owner of Anneal, a consulting firm, and is a partner at Commerce Kitchen, a web development, design, and marketing company. She serves as the project manager for DigitalLearn.org, an online hub for those who teach and support digital learners. Before that she worked as the project manager for Colorado’s Public Computer Centers, which brought computers and training to 88 locations throughout Colorado and has already seen more than three million users. Hollier consults for Open Government and Startup communities in Colorado.
According to the White House, the Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity to feature groups of Americans – individuals, businesses and organizations – who are doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities.
Congratulations, Jamie, and keep up the amazing work!
