Mary Beth grew up in Saint Louis, Missouri but has been a South Florida resident for 33 years in the Palm Beach area. After graduating magna cum laude with a BA in interdisciplinary studies and a certificate in ethnic studies from FAU as a 50-year-old mother of 5, she continued thriving in education. 5 years later, she received yet another BA from FAU in anthropology, focusing on archaeology. She has worked with the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum since her final semester at FAU. During her time there, she has fulfilled many of her dreams–working in a museum, being a librarian, connecting with the community, and even editing and publishing a book. She says even though she waited a lifetime to realize some of her dreams, it's further proof that people should never give up. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
