2. Why are you passionate about your commitment to United Way’s Community Investment Fund?

Being a seventh generation Floridian, also means that Florida is my home. I have called Gainesville my home for the past 29 years, and so have my parents and their parents. Nowhere else will ever have the special place in my heart like Gainesville does. That being said, investing in my community means everything to me, because I want to see the place I call home grow and continue to develop so I can one day raise my family here. 

3. What is something interesting or surprising that most people don’t know about you?

I am a seventh generation Floridian. 

4. What would your older self-tell your younger self?

Make a conscious effort to maintain relationships with people and take the time to get to know the people you come in contact with. Friendships get deeper, not wider.
