I am a mother and a wife, math professor, solar advocate, world traveler, yogi, artist, photographer, sharer of knowledge/information, and resident of Central Florida. I've worked professionally in applied math, engineering, medical research, and as a university math professor in IL and FL for over 25 years. My husband and I loved Disney and moved down to Central Florida initially as snowbirds. But we've come to love the warmth and friendly people offered by this community and decided to move down to Central Florida full time in 2006. I am now spending time sharing information/ knowledge online and developing Windermere Sun (http://www.WindermereSun.com) as an online publication, sharing and promoting Community ABC's (Activities-Businesses-Collaborations) for healthier/happier/more sustainable living.
