I am a native and lifelong resident of Lakeland. As a matter of fact, my family has had roots in this great community for well over 50 years. Although I have lived in the “big cities,” like Los Angeles, Dallas, New Orleans, & New York City, this quaint town just keeps calling me back home. I believe that the area’s strong sense of community, volunteerism, & culture appeals to my philanthropic nature. I have been involved with the Polk Museum of Art, Polk Theatre, March of Dimes, S.P.C.A., Noah’s Ark, & even served on the Board of Directors for the Imperial Symphony Orchestra. My involvement in local causes & cultural activities has allowed me to meet so many great people. My career in real estate spans nearly 20 years and has allowed me to serve the community in yet another fulfilling manner.
I am an animal lover & have 2 dogs, Dolly and Nicky, & a cat named Betty Kitty. They have become a part of my extended family. I enjoy living so close to my family in Lakeland. It allows us to get together often. Another passion of mine is cooking . . . . Seafood, French, Italian, Southern . . . it doesn’t matter! I have been fortunate enough to travel to some beautiful destinations around the world including multiple points in Europe, South America, Mexico & the Caribbean. If you are interested in seeing Lakeland from the eyes of “native son” I would love to show you around the town I call home.
