I live in beautiful downtown Orlando, Florida with my husband Robert and our mini-schnauzer, Maxie. We live in a 12th-floor condo across the street from lovely Lake Eola Park and thoroughly enjoy city living. I recently retired after 26 years of employment with the City of Lake Wales, Florida where I served as City Manager for the past several years. Though retired, I keep myself busy with website design, genealogical research, and reading the books I never had time to read before. My husband and I love to travel, and we've done quite a bit of traveling in the eastern U.S., Canada and Europe. We're in the process of planning a 30-day trip down the scenic west coast from Vancouver to San Diego with a visit to Las Vegas before flying home.
