If you are Interested in learning more about Madeline...
Madeline completed degrees in Graphic Design and Marketing and worked for private businesses and governmental organizations mostly in product management and TV production in her natal Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. After she moved to Los Angeles, she worked briefly in the marketing field until she found her true love and passion—public libraries. In 2007 she started working in the Multilingual Collection Department of the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) and was mentored by an extraordinary librarian, Pat Cuesta, who motivated her to pursue a career in libraries and encouraged her to join REFORMA. Madeline completed the MLIS program from San Jose State University in 2012 and soon after was hired as a librarian to manage social media and digital marketing for the LAPL library system.
