CEO, CHW Professional Consultants
Came to Greater Gainesville In 1979
What is your favorite local food?
My favorite local food is Loosey’s at Haile Market Square and New Deal. I love the burgers and other fresh options available in a local atmosphere.
What is your favorite time of year and/or favorite weather conditions?
I love the summer. I love the heat and humidity (I know I am in the minority). I love it when it is 90 at 7 a.m. and just going to get hotter, especially when there is no wind!
Where do you go to escape into nature?
I like the Santa Fe River, and the lakes in the Hawthorne area. I also will get away to Cedar Key for just relaxing in the small-town atmosphere or on the water.
What about Greater Gainesville stood out when comparing it to your other options?
I came here as a freshman at UF with a single goal of obtaining my degree in Civil Engineering. I had other options for engineering school, however, in 1979 they were all out of state. Hence Florida’s program and in-state tuition became the best option.
