Greetings from your new Ocean Reef Press Advertising Sales Manager. After receiving my Bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Central Florida in 2012, I moved to Key Largo to work for Ocean Reef Club, where I spent the last four years as the Marina Concierge. A Florida native at heart, when I'm not working I enjoy all the Keys has to offer including fishing, diving and bike riding. I look forward to meeting everyone who is a part of this wonderful community and am very excited about this new opportunity.
