    Serena was born and raised in Plant City, FL, just 20 minutes east of Tampa. She completed her undergraduate and Master’s degrees at the University of South Florida in Psychology and Cognitive Psychology, respectively. After graduating, she took on her first Human Resources Manager role at a movie theater in Tampa and fell in love with the profession...but not so much the theater hours. Serena eventually decided to tie her psychology background to the HR field, so she applied to Louisiana State University and returned to school full-time to pursue her PhD in Human Resources Education. Once she finished, she returned to Florida and was hired on at Halifax Health as part of the Organizational Development team, eventually moving into the role of manager and realizing her goal of utilizing her education to lead strategic HR initiatives across the organization. Although she still gets back to Tampa pretty regularly, Serena loves calling the Daytona Beach area home and is currently buying a house in Ormond Beach for herself and her pet lizard, a bearded dragon named Valkyrie.
