Her prize was an animated Halloween decoration.
Lee lives near The Falls area, just across S. Dixie Highway from Palmetto Bay, and has enjoyed working with other staff members during her past two months at Village Hall.
“I’m mostly upstairs though, so I associate a lot with Parks and Finance, since Finance is a very central department,” she said.
Lee attended FIU, graduating with a major in Human Resources, so it worked out very well for her.
“A lot of people don’t get to do what they set out to do to begin with, so I was very lucky,” Lee said. “I recently graduated, but while I was in school, I was working at a law firm for about four years. I think that work helped as a transition here, and a lot of it was relatable office work.”
Lee said that she likes the new Village Hall building and has enjoyed attending the village’s special events.
“The new place definitely sounds like an upgrade from what it was before,” she said. “I just went to the State of the Village and listened to the mayor’s speech and got to see a lot of familiar residents because I know a lot of them do come here.”
