About Jen

 Jen Giffen is a Teacher Librarian and former Digital Literacy Curriculum Consultant in Ontario, Canada.

While Jen was never much of a doodler, she was curious about the power of sketchnoting after she saw teachers doing it on social media. In 2016, She decided to give it a go during staff meetings and keynote addresses to help her focus and retain information.  The rest is history.

She has facilitated sketchnoting sessions across North America since 2017.  In 2023 she officially illustrated her first book, Long-Term Success for Experienced Multilinguals by Tan Huynh and Beth Skelton.

You can find on social media @VirtualGiff.

Jen happily commissions sketchnotes for books, social media posts, presentations, and more.  If you are looking to partner, please email Jen at Jen@VirtualGiff.com for more details.
