Florida's first lady, Ann Scott, tours Tampa women's center

TAMPA — Florida first lady Ann Scott toured a Tampa women's center Wednesday morning, part of her move into the spotlight as her husband's re-election campaign heats up.

The nonprofit Centre for Women provides services for "women in transition," many of whom are going through divorces or struggling with substance abuse problems. The services include counseling, job training and workshops.

Scott meet several local women while attending a presentation on how to ask empowering questions and a class on computer skills. Scott joked that she should take a computer class because "computers weren't even in the workplace when I was out there."
