Meet Jennifer Peacock, Administrative Services Director at MLC. Jennifer works hard to keep the financial and technical aspects of the agency running smoothly. She also oversees the management of the agency’s beautiful facility in Jackson.
Jennifer has enjoyed serving libraries in her six and a half years of employment. Seeing small libraries benefit from the services offered by MLC has been the most rewarding thing of all. She also appreciates the fact that libraries serve every member of a community. She has advocated extremely hard for libraries at the state capitol for the last couple of years, and worked diligently to try to get faster internet connections for all of the state’s libraries.
Jennifer has a degree in Paramedicine, a Bachelor of Science in Management and is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Public Administration. With all of this studying, her time for leisurely reading has been put on the back burner. “I have spent so long reading textbooks, I won’t know how to act when I can go back to reading for pleasure,” she said.
She enjoys regular beach trips with her friends, cruises and spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren.
