In 1965, when I was 10 years of age, my family came to Brevard County. My father was a space industry engineer employed at Kennedy Space Center. My mother had a long career with the Brevard County School Board. I, along with my sister and brother,attended Brevard County public schools. Ultimately I graduated from UCF (B.A. 1978) and FSU (J.D., with Honors 1981) Law School. Before becoming a lawyer I worked at the Kennedy Space Center center, including working with the shuttle program. I have been active in the Brevard County Bar Association (former President) and was appointed by Governor Charlie Crist to serve our community as a Trustee to Brevard Community College. I was recently reappointed to this position by Governor Rick Scott. I truly enjoy working in and serving our Brevard County Community.
