Today’s Islander: Meet Virna Mejicanos

A regular feature on Marco Islanders you otherwise might never get to meet

Virna Mejicanos

Virna Mejicanos

Hometown: Guatemala.

Occupation: Customer service representative at the Publix Supermarket in Shops of Marco.

Education: “I graduated from high school in Guatemala before I – actually all my family — moved to Naples and we live near each other in Golden Gate.”

Family/marital status: “I live in Golden Gate with my husband, Ludvin, and one (baby) to come in September. This is my first pregnancy and my doctor says to expect a new baby girl, and we have decided to name her Sasha.”

How she got to Marco Island: Work. I applied for a job at one of the Publix store computer sites in Naples and when they hired me they sent me to work in the Shops of Marco Publix. I’ve been working here 16 months, but I would like to work closer to my place in Naples.

Favorite place on Marco: “My favorite thing is the beach — I like Tigertail Beach because it’s pretty and convenient to where I work.”

Lessons learned: “I learned to be a careful driver on Marco Island because people don’t look where they’re going, especially in the parking (lot). I would tell anyone to look both ways when they back up out of a parking place.”
