Rebecca Burgess

Rebecca is the manager at our Northwestern Memorial Hospital bookstore. She began working for Barbara's in 2012. She's worn many hats throughout her life: preschool teacher, arts fundraiser and business manager, alumni event planner, ultimately landing in the book business, where she has happily played for the last 13 years.
