Executive Director, PACE Center for Girls
Became a resident of Greater Gainesville in 2010 after graduating from UF
What about Greater Gainesville stood out when comparing it to your other options?
Simply, the community. I knew this was the place for me to reside when I began volunteering in Gainesville and followed my passion for helping at promise youth. The people of Gainesville genuinely care about the future generation of their community and are committed to their success. It spoke not only to my professional aspirations in youth service, but also I thought, what an amazing place to raise a family.
When friends or family come to visit, where is the first place you take them?
I always try to plan their visit during the best food event ever, Taste of Gainesville!
Describe your ideal day in Greater Gainesville.
My ideal day in Greater Gainesville would be brunch at Flying Biscuit, going to the Parade of Homes (if it is that time of year), dinner at Dragonfly, and then dancing and listening to music at Fluid Lounge at Tioga for the evening.
