I am a graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. I have run my family's gold award winning Americas Best Value Inn in Bradenton Florida for 20 years. I am passionate about revitalizing Downtown Sarasota and the historic Gillespie Park Neighborhood where I have lived and worked for over 10 years. My husband and I live with our spoiled rotten Vizlsa named Lucy. We love to walk Lucy and ride our bikes into downtown and out to the beach.
