My husband Carlton and I, along with the Princess of the House, our cat Miss Moo, moved to Melrose from Virginia in June of 2016. We decided to move closer to family and enjoy the warmth of Florida. Our son Keith lives in Boynton Beach, and my brother and sister, along with our nieces and their families all live in Keystone. We had visited family frequently for over 30 years and knew what a wonderful area it was.

I spent most of my career in Food Service Marketing, selling restaurant equipment and supplies and moving to National Accounts with SYSCO Foods. After leaving the corporate world, I sold various items on ebay from home. Carlton would find quality merchandise and I would sell it. The happy high-fives came when the items did better than we expected. We also owned Estate Solutions, our estate liquidation business for about 12 years until we closed it just before moving. Now we enjoy browsing estate sales while we explore the beautiful area of North Central FL.

We live in Geneva Lake Estates.  It’s a wonderful neighborhood with lots of trees, perfect for walking around chatting with our neighbors, and appreciating God's amazing works of nature.  I’m a member of Lake Region Kiwanis Club and was recently elected to the Board of Directors. I feel honored to be able be a part of the good that Kiwanis does for our kids and our community.

My husband and I are members of Community Church of Keystone Heights, where I often work in Kingdom Kids, and enjoy being a greeter on Sunday mornings. Our women’s ministry  is very active, conducting rummage sales to support missions, church functions, and the annual Back2School event which insures that almost 300 local children get the shoes and clothing that they need to start school with confidence. I’ll be serving as the 2nd VP of the women’s ministry for the 2018 year.

One of our greatest blessings since living here is that we’ve become “Grandparents at Heart”  for twin 8 year old boys, Joel and Noah. They bring amazing joy to our lives. My husband and I enjoy traveling and eating good seafood and sushi, I love peaceful moments curled up with my cat and a good book.

Exercise has been part of most of my adult life, so I was looking for a gym soon after I moved here from Virginia. Will Parramore was so helpful and made my sister and I laugh so hard when we were joining that I felt like I’d found a great place to work out.  I wasn’t disappointed. Todd is so kind to everyone and truly cares about his members. He always takes time and gently helps everyone. He has built a place where members become friends and encourage one another. The pleasant atmosphere at Genesis is unlike any gym I’ve been in. I train 2-3 times a week with my friend Will Parramore, the gym manager (who still makes me laugh all the time) and I actually look forward to the hard workouts he gives me.  Genesis knits friendship and health together in a clean healthy place. I’m very grateful to have found it.

To the question, f you could have dinner with anyone, living or deceased, who would you choose?  “My father”, she said “because I miss his presence each day.”

Her favorite quote, “Always do what you think is right.  That’s what my father used to say to me all the time.”
