Fun at Home
Originally from St. Petersburg, Florida, I moved to Tampa with my husband Tony in 2008. We have two beautiful daughters, Ava and Mia. I enjoy running, traveling, and cheering for Gator Football, but spending time with my loved ones is my favorite pastime.
In the Community
I’ve been committed to sponsoring the annual Great West Chase 5k Race to benefit local schools, and additionally directly support several local schools, including Westchase Elementary, Deer Park Elementary, Mary Bryant Elementary, Davidson Middle School and Farnell Middle School, many of these schools for over a decade. In addition to donations to the school PTA, we attend the Great American Teach In and school festivals. We sponsor sports at the schools and in the community. We have an annual Candy Buy Back contest amongst the local elementary schools. We have also hosted blood donation drives at our office.
My expertise can help others who are in need: Children born with craniofacial abnormalities, such as cleft lip and palate, hold a special place in my heart. These patients have very complex needs that require the attention of multiple medical and dental specialists. To assist these children and their families in getting the surgical and orthodontic care that they need, I volunteered my time for over 14 years at the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Cleft and Craniofacial Team, and currently I’m volunteering at the Tampa Bay Cleft and Craniofacial Team for over one year.
