Phoebe Owens

Communication & Learning Associate

What I do at the Meyer Trust:

I assist on Learning and Communication projects like connec+ipedia and ongoing work. I have a Master of Library & Information Science Degree, so I am always trying to find Librarian duties, which isn't difficult at all!

What is your favorite word?

Today, it's "shenanigans."

What sound do you love?

The sound of my mind being blown.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Don't worry, you're hallucinating.

Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?

I love strong female characters, antiheroes, and historical fiction, as well as some non-fiction heroes. The Dude, Hildegard "Hildy" Johnson, Kidlat Tahimik (he's real), Atticus Finch, Gaius Baltar, Ender, Hari Seldon, Sasha Pankratov, Zena: Warrior Princess, Buffy, Mal and the gang, Tammy Sylvester, Tammie Pritchett, Darby Overhulse, Suzi Lombardo, Lily Bart, Fermina Daza, Scout, Ramona and Beezuz are just a start from the many favorite films, books and stories I love. As a Librarian, I find it so hard to pick favorite genres, let alone characters!

What is your present state of mind?

Silly and curious.

What is your motto?

Get awesome.

If you won $100 million in the lottery tomorrow, who or what would you give the first 100K to?

Some would go to my high school friend's mom who always took care of all of the kids on the block and cooked for us, even though she had nothing. A significant amount would pay off the ol' student loans. Anything left would go to my family and favorite non-profits and art projects.

What musician would you most like to see perform in your living room?

My living room is very teeny tiny, so someone who doesn't freak out too hard would be good. Watching my mom play banjo in my living room is my favorite.

What is your secret ambition?

Oooh! I'm not ready to give that up, yet! Even a blabber-mouth like me needs a secret or two.
