Susan RuberryOctober 14, 2020 – The Sanibel Historical Village is pleased to introduce its new Finance Assistant, Susan Ruberry. Ruberry hails from Washington, D.C., and has been a full-time Sanibel resident since February 2019.

“I had been working as a Managing Director for a Human Resources Consulting Firm since 2014 and was ready for a change when I came to Sanibel,” Ruberry said. “I wanted to do something that would be useful and rewarding and also get me involved in the community.”

Ruberry held a number of responsible positions prior to her work at the consulting firm, including as a self-employed finance and accounting consultant.

At the Historical Village, Ruberry will be responsible for, among other things, paying bills, processing payroll, overseeing the donor database, filing regularly scheduled reports including quarterly City of Sanibel reports and IRS filings.

“Susan’s skills are an excellent match with our needs,” said Emilie Alfino, Historical Village executive director. “We’re so pleased she was willing to join our small team, and I look forward to a long and happy collaboration.”

Ruberry is married with two children and three dogs.

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to eight of the nine buildings. Admission is FREE for SHMV members and $15 for non-members (adults ages 18 years and up).  For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
