Rebecca Mogg has served on the board since August 18, 2021. After graduating with her BA in Business Administration with a management emphasis, Rebecca began her career with the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG) conducting program and management analysis. She left after eight years to coach career moms and women. Over the last few years that business laid dormant while they followed her husband’s (Matthew Mogg) career and navigated covid. Since moving to Norwood she began focusing on her first love, one that has woven itself through her entire life, writing. Rebecca is (finally) buckling down and writing her first book to completion (on reclaiming your voice after silencing) while continuing to mentor women behind the scenes. Additionally, she is slowly dipping her toe back into the vocal music waters.
Rebecca brings to the board her extensive experience in program and management analysis at the federal level, business, coaching/mentoring, and writing. She is thankful for the library, as it has been a support throughout the transition of moving to Norwood and getting to know the community. “I’m incredibly grateful that the library and its programs were available to my kids and me when we moved here in late 2020. It was my touchpoint, filled with friendly faces, to a new community during a very strange, difficult, ongoing time in U.S. history. I personally see many possibilities for how the library, which is already a growing asset for this community, can grow in serving this community and its needs.”
