Rebecca is a Children's Librarian at a public library in the suburbs of Chicago. Her goal is to create educational gaming programs at libraries, which she has already started doing at the library where she works.
Her website, To Play Is Human, houses her writing on games and gaming culture. She has an interview series titled “DIY Crafty Gamers” which features gamers and the projects they make for their games.
Rebecca co-hosts Playability, an interview-based podcast at the crossroads of gameplay and accessibility. The show's goal is to get the gaming community talking and thinking more about accessibility in games via discussions with designers/artists/developers about how they’ve addressed accessibility in past or current games. Discussions about accessibility include physical, visual, cognitive, emotional, and social (inclusivity, etc.) accessibility. Episodes run 15-20 minutes — something people can listen to during a commute, a lunch break, a walk, etc. Full transcripts are posted with each episode.
Rebecca an administrator for the World of Women Network (WoW). WoW is an international community of gamers. There is a Discord server that is just for women-identifying folks. There is also a Facebook group that is for anyone who believes that gaming is for everyone – folks of all walks of life are welcome to join and support us here. Gaming brought us all together, but you’ll find channels for all sorts of hobbies on the Discord server. We value our community and building supportive relationships.
