I’ve lived in Central Florida since 1985, in College Park for the last 13. I just turned 40, been married to husband Vince since 2009, and we have two sons, Johnny 9 and Sonny 7. I am a real estate broker, started my company in 2007 in Lake Mary and now have three locations with over 100 agents. We are blessed to be surrounded by our families and best friends, most of them living right here in College Park. Right now, our evenings and weekends are dedicated to baseball – lol. Hectic but wouldn’t have it any other way.
