All opinions expressed here are my own and are not reflections of Monroe County Government or the Monroe County Public Library. Beginning my third career as a new librarian, after 22 years as a massage therapist in the Florida Keys. It may seem like a big shift but I have always been interested in education and information as well as how to best sift through the multitude of information sources to find what is most useful. After Hurricane Irma, I accepted my first position at the University of St Augustine for Health Sciences. Sadly, I found myself to homesick so I decided to return to the Florida Keys a little over a year later. I accepted a position at the public library. While I miss the more interesting parts of my work at USA, I am happy to be working with a great team and with the public as well as learning how different the public library is from a private, for-profit university.
