Daisica started working at the Marshall County Memorial Library February of 2021.  Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Daisica served as a very active member both in her high school, earning Most Likely to Succeed and her community, serving as Chairperson of the largest Youth United Way in America.  After high school, she moved to Chicago, IL where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Theater with a concentration in acting from Columbia College Chicago.  Throughout her years there, she performed in numerous shows, of which included “A Streetcar Named Desire”, “Ragtime”, “Aida” and two seasons performing with the infamous improv company, Second City.

In the early 2010’s, Daisica had a dream that completely changed her focus as a storyteller.  The dream centered around 100 years of untold African American history based on the lives of this one family over the course of four generations.  Ever since that dream, she has been on the hunt rigorously gathering as much historical information as possible to bring this novel series to life!  Her passion for this story guided her to Marshall County (the very place her own family stretches back four generations) and MCML where she is studying to become certified in American Genealogical Studies and spearheading a program for aspiring authors…more on that to come!

Daisica’s goals are to complete her novel saga in five years as well as support the build of a diverse wealth of history within the genealogy room for Marshall County and beyond to enjoy for generations to come!
