I grew up in Ohio and moved to Indiana for college. After working in the insurance business I got into retail and became a buyer of children’s apparel and ended up working in New York City. After several year of buying for a national chain, I began working for various manufacturers of apparel. Finally tiring of the hustle and bustle of the city and commuting, I decided to move to Florida and that my parents had had a home in Bonita Springs. I built a villa in Estero and after 12 years I downsized and moved to Bonita Springs. I love the newness and convenience of the area and watching Estero grow. It really is paradise! I enjoy my part-time job at Select for it’s diversity and the great people I work with. I love coming to work as I never know what I will be doing. I'm always learning something new. My interests outside of work are volunteering at the Estero Chamber, being Treasurer of Estero Encore Club, Secretary of a chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, playing euchre, reading and traveling.
