Council Director, Girls on the Run of Alachua County
Came to Greater Gainesville as a child in 1983
What is your favorite local food?
While there is so much great food in Gainesville to choose from, my current favorite food is from the Cilantro Tacos food truck, which invariably leads me to find it at one of the local breweries in town.
Where do you go to escape into nature?
I love to visit Mill Creek Farm, acres and acres of field devoted to retired horses. On Saturdays with the admission of two carrots, Mill Creek Farm is a wonderful escape into nature. With 335 acres, my family loves to walk the farm as well as feed and interact with the horses.
Describe your ideal day in Greater Gainesville.
My ideal day would be a day in October, waking up on a brisk, cool Saturday morning, lacing up the shoes and going on a run, watching my girls play in a soccer game, then heading out to Mill Creek Farm in Alachua with my family, carrots in tow for admission, to feed and spend time together with the horses on the farm. When leaving Alachua, stopping by Mi Apa for some yummy café con leche, and have dinner together.
