Caitie Cerise has worn many hats in her career as an elementary school teacher, technology project manager, and public library manager and is currently the Library Director for the Walton County Public Library System. Caitie and her family have been based in the Florida Panhandle for her husband's Air Force service for the last 14 years, and love exploring the beautiful nature on the Emerald Coast.
A proud graduate of Auburn University and Florida State University, Caitie holds a BA in English and an MA in Information Science and is working on her Certified Public Manager certification. When not reading picture books with her son, she spends her time volunteering as a coach for soccer and tee-ball, soaking up the sun on the beach, and traveling with her family. Caitie is thrilled to support Florida authors as a Florida Book Awards juror.
