Born and bred in the Sunshine State, Kelly and Jamie share a love story that began during their high school years. Their bond strengthened over time, leading them to tie the knot in the winter of 1990.
In the same year, Jamie opted for a career in service to his nation and enlisted as an infantryman in the U.S. Army. Concurrently, Kelly discovered her passion for capturing moments, embarking on a rewarding career in photography. Their journey led them across the country to the picturesque landscapes of California and Washington State, where they were introduced to the craft beer movement—a fascination that would only grow with time.
Following Jamie’s honorable tenure with the Army, the couple decided to return to their Florida roots. They chose to settle in Valrico, a community they’ve held close to their hearts ever since. This tight-knit town has witnessed their story unfurl, from raising two amazing children to actively contributing to community growth.
Their love for Valrico is apparent in their everyday life. As proud parents and dedicated community members, they strive to contribute positively to their town. Through their personal and professional journeys, Kelly and Jamie’s life narrative underscores their deep connection to their community—a bond they intend to strengthen as they continue their life’s adventure.
