I am proud to have been selected to be part of such an important organization that will lead us to be the No. 1 state in the country to live, work and play."

According to a press release from the governor's office, the Seminole resident has served as a board member of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp. and on the Board of Fellows for the University of Tampa.

Her term on the SPC board began May 30 and ends May 31, 2015.
