Mérida English Library announced on Monday February 8th that four new members have joined its board. They all possess unique and valuable skills that will certainly be put to good use. Here’s a little information about each of them:
Greg Casini lives in Merida and telecommutes to his job in California as the Sierra Club’s national director of chapter support. Although he became a dentist and later earned a Ph.D. in virology, he switched careers ten years ago to work on environmental issues.
He has held a number of volunteer positions with the Sierra Club, from local chapter committee worker to membership on the national board of directors.
Valerie Grimsley has for the past eight years been the director of Central College’s study abroad program here in Merida. She has lived in Mexico for most of the last 25 years.
She has degrees in Spanish and international business administration. She is a long-time MEL member and a self-described voracious reader.
Bob Hertzig is a retired restauranteur who owned and managed four successful restaurants in New York and Massachusetts.
He was a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal and later taught English as a Second Language in Venezuela. In addition to English, he speaks Spanish, French and Hindi. Both his BA and MA are in international studies.
Brent Marsh is the co-founder of Remixto, a successful vacation rental management company based in Merida.
He has a strong background in information technology (IT), including data entry, data storage and retrieval, law library systems, and business intelligence. A native of New Zealand, he lived in London, San Francisco and Boston before moving to Merida.
