Hailing from North Palm Beach, Sharon lived in Winston-Salem NC, Morgantown WV, Hampton VA and Tacoma WA before returning, with her husband Kendall Reid, to sunny St. Petersburg in 2015. She started her career in the rare books collection at Wake Forest University, made a 180 to public libraries where she worked in IT, spent the bulk of her career in support services administration, and wrapped things up as library director at Tacoma Community College. Along the way, she’s fit in a lot of travel, some grad school teaching, and volunteer work in historic preservation and urban planning, community mediation, hospice care and gun safety. She holds MLS and MPA degrees, serves as vice-chair of St. Petersburg’s Planning and Preservation Commission, is active with the League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area, and is training as a docent at the new Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement. At UUSP, she’s worked on facility design & planning, communications, and now serves on the Board. She cherishes the relationships she developed and the community she’s found at UUSP.
