Noelle Pugliese

Visitor Services Specialist

Noelle is a relatively new to Illinois. She was born and bred in sunny San Diego. Noelle met her future husband while he was stationed in San Diego. His work brought the couple and their dog, Wrangler, to Waukegan during their engagement. In April of 2018 they celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary.

When Noelle started her job search she was looking for both a position that would challenge her as well as a company that had strong roots in the community. A passion for reading had been ingrained in Noelle as a child by her older sister who was an avid reader. Finding an organization such as Bernie’s Book Bank was extremely inspiring and a cause Noelle is thrilled to be a part of. Noelle loves being part of the team and is eager to spread the influence of Bernie’s Book Bank across the Chicago area.

When she is not working as an ambassador for literacy she enjoys camping, hiking, woodworking, reading, and spending time with her family both here and in California.
