Roots in Central Florida
I have lived in Central Florida for over 20 years, currently in Mount Dora. My mom and dad and family are Apopka residents.
I own Barrel of Books & Games, a new & used bookstore in Downtown Mount Dora.
Government Experience & Accomplishments
For the past two years I have served as the At Large City Council member in Mount Dora. I am the only candidate for the District 31 seat this year with government experience. I am proud that I fulfilled every one of the campaign issues from my 2018 Council race including policies to increase public safety and move infrastructure expenses to future growth rather than current residents by supporting long term bonding. Last year I successfully pushed to lower our millage rate.
I am a volunteer with Lake Cares Food Pantry. I actively assist our library system. I am in the 2020 Leadership Lake class which covers all aspects and activities of our county government.
Bachelor of Arts in Accounting (1998), Masters in Business Administration(1999). Both from Stetson University. I am 44 years old.
I have career experience to back up making sound decisions. I started my first business with my brother while we were in high school, baseball cards and comic books. By the time we graduated we had 3 locations. I worked my way through college on a variety of jobs including setting up cost accounting, tracking and budgeting. My post graduate career started at Infocure, a large NASDAQ traded medical billing software company in Atlanta. Next I moved to the New Orleans area to join the Treasury Department as a accountant for Stewart Enterprises. Stewart Enterprises, another NASDAQ traded company, is a large company that was founded in 1910 and is America’s second largest provider of funeral and cemetery services. I was responsible for tracking investments and creating financial statements. I returned to Florida to join Enterprise, the international car rental company, where I was branch manager in Orange City and in Deland. Along the way before starting my business, I worked for Walt Disney World, United Parcel Service, and the United States Postal Service.
