A graduate of the Masters of Library and Information Science program from University of South Carolina, Misty believes libraries are the great equalizer, always inclusive and never exclusive. She thrives on change and believes that the strength of libraries is in their ability to redefine themselves to fit public need. She is intent on changing perceptions and showing that libraries are a vital part of the educational and economic ecosystem and essential to the success of a community and it members. Through programs like Library NExT, Spring into STEAM and Career Online High School, SDPL is working with partners to ensure all San Diegans have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. She is committed to making San Diego Public Library the place for opportunity, discovery and inspiration.
