If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I'd stay in the nonprofit world and would be serving children in our community.
What is the biggest risk you've taken in your career?
Packing up my family and moving from Pennsylvania to Florida in 1989. I was in the swimming pool business at that time and Florida would be the place to be.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?
I would start in our own community and then go south along the west coast of Florida. Florida is spectacular.
