While Little Caymanians will find a new face behind the counter of that island's post office, Maxine Moore is no stranger.
Ms Moore takes over from Carolyn Shroy, who is leaving to further her education in the United States.
Little Cayman was Ms Moore's childhood playground, but she is well acquainted with all three Cayman Islands. She was educated on the Brac, and she did time on Grand Cayman, working in the insurance industry and at various jobs in government departments.
But if someone asked Ms Moore which of the three islands she likes best, the answer would be "Little Cayman". "I love Little Cayman because of its tranquillity. The people are laid back, and one can accomplish everything in one day. Another big bonus - there is no traffic," she said.
Ms Moore is the daughter of Sam and Mary McCoy, who she says were the tourism pioneers on Little Cayman.
Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow is pleased that Ms Moore has joined the Cayman Islands Postal Service team.
"As a long-time resident of Little Cayman, Maxine brings to the Postal Service a wealth of knowledge of the needs of residents. Her presence will undoubtedly contribute to the enhancement of postal services on Little Cayman," she said.
Maxine has three children, Vicki, Miguel, and Waid, and two grandsons.
