Ellen Vargas
    Ellen Vargas is a product of the City of Miami Beach Parks and Recreation Department. After moving to Miami Beach from New York, Ellen attended Crespi Park and North Shore Park. Ellen attended Florida State University as a music major and later changed to Parks and Recreation. She spent her summers working for the City of Miami Beach Parks and Recreation Department, so choosing a major she enjoyed came easy to her. “I love coming to work every day. Working with children is the best career anyone could ever ask for." Ellen has worked for the City of Miami Beach for over 24 years. She is fortunate to have called Scott Rakow one of her best friends. “I am grateful to work in a building named in his honor. He was and will always be remembered as someone who had a passion for helping people."
