Life can be serious and I like to have fun.  Sometimes fun has to begin somewhere.  My emoji says “I know where the fun begins.”

Why I do this work: I do this work because I like to help people.  I want to serve the people of greater Gainesville by providing the resources, programming, education, love and encouragement they need to live their life to the fullest!
