My husband Jon and I just took over this beautiful property. I grew up in New Jersey and went to college in Pennsylvania. I attended Kutztown University and Penn State. I worked at Wilson School District in West Lawn, PA for 35 years as a teacher and administrator. I retired from Wilson and worked as an Assistant Professor at Penn State Harrisburg where I taught future teachers and administrators.
My husband and I vacationed in Bokeelia and fell in love with the tranquility. Jon is an avid fisherman and Pine Island offers the best fishing imaginable.
