WELCOME

 A Florida native and former standout athlete in several sports during my high school career in Tampa, my husband Jose and I, and our children Nora and Antonio, have lived in Naples for the last 4 years. In that time I have developed a passion for, and am now a board member with, Girls On The Run of Collier County. In working with Girls On The Run, it has lit a fire in me to serve the community, specifically focusing on youth programs. I have a passion for health and wellness, and I regularly enter races in the community and enjoy working out both with my friends and family. I currently works at Orangetheory Fitness Naples and have also worked for the Greater Naples YMCA and the Campo Family YMCA in Tampa. While being with the YMCA and being part of their focus on youth development, I saw the need for a boys' program to complement the Girls On The Run program in Collier County. It is helping so many elementary school-aged girls, and I knew I had to provide that for boys. With my son Antonio about to enter elementary school, I knew this would be a good time to grow the options for elementary school-aged boys with a program to help them and provide extra encouragement and support.
