August Presentation - Women's Center of Jacksonville Presented by Lucy Maddox, Development Coordinator
An Orlando native, Lucy Maddox received her B.A. in Literature from New College of Florida; her undergraduate thesis was a feminist reevaluation of genre fiction. After spending 5 years living in Manhattan, she moved back to Florida to earn her M.S. in Information at Florida State University, with a focus on public library leadership, which she was awarded in 2019. From 2016 to 2020, Lucy worked in nonprofit development at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando, before relocating to Jacksonville. Lucy was hired by the Women’s Center of Jacksonville to assist with Development efforts, during a challenging time…in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. With only 3 months under her belt, she has already helped to host the largest event the Women’s Center has ever had, a virtual celebration of both the Women’s Center’s 25th anniversary and the 100 year anniversary of a woman’s right to vote! In a short time, Lucy is becoming an expert in both the services offered by the Women’s Center of Jacksonville and our First Coast community. Women-s-Center-of-Jax-presentation-August-26-2020.pdf
