Rebecca Gebhardt

Brought up in Switzerland, Rebecca is now based in Atlanta, Georgia. The years of Swiss upbringing are apparent now in her love of lists, written systems and the color-coding of her calendar. Rebecca took the indirect route to business via a degree in Classical Greek and a Masters in Fine Arts and Curatorship. She is now well known throughout the librarian field, balancing IT expertise with her approachable understanding manner. When Rebecca isn’t running Linex stateside she can be found outdoors playing bocce (a version of boules dating back to the Roman Empire) or supporting Italy in the latest soccer series.
