Volunteer Spotlight: Rachel Grygorcewicz
I first became an audience member in 2011 and have attended every Christmas Revels Performance from 2011 onward. I became a volunteer in January 2019.
My background is in Library and Information Science. I find it fascinating how people use data and how the format of data can determine what specific software and/or tools they use. I love data entry and have helped Revels with lots of data entry as well as usher performances, gather tickets, file music and many other tasks.
I love Revels people. They are creative, artsy and passionate about life.
I had the opportunity to participate in the tea event with Ruth Heespelink and had a great time.
My mom ingrained in us that arts and culture are very important in life and give you the opportunity to learn and explore. I love to travel and explore different cultures, eat different cuisine, etc.
I am a professional librarian and work as an Operations Specialist at Harvard University in the Harvard Depository on the Countway Library Project. In this role, I review book plates, stamps, fonts and any marks that may indicate ownership in library holdings to create a complete catalogue of library holdings. Items in review include academic articles, journals, newspapers, tomes, digital recordings to name a few. The oldest holding I have reviewed dated to 1602! In addition to my love of books and libraries and archives, I love being outdoors, going fishing. A fun fact about me is that I own and have restored a 1975 Triumph TR 6. I really enjoy working on it!
