My husband and I moved to Fort Myers eight years ago. We were drawn by the city’s beauty, versatility and multiculturalism . We fell in love with the warm and friendly people of our community as well as the robust and growing energy of SW Florida. While becoming a candidate was not on my agenda, public office is just a new pathway for what I do best which is taking care of people. As the spouse of a retired Naval Officer I have lived in 11 states and 2 foreign countries. Because of this, I have had the opportunity to witness diverse cultures and leadership skills. I believe these experiences give me the unique and solid prospective to be a good leader. My education includes a degree in Business: Management and Organizational Development with emphases in Economics and Accounting. I also have a background in Marketing. During my career I have consulted with large and small organizations and have been involved in business education at the government level. Over the years, I have led small business consulting groups and hosted many business seminars. The experience I have achieved in this arena has given me an excellent vision and insight as to what is needed on the horizon of this growing city.
