Generations of my family have lived and worked in Tampa. My mother and father were born in Tampa; my grandmother was born in Tampa and my great-grandmother was born in Key West.

I attended Thomas Jefferson High School and was in the first graduating class of Leto High School. I was a member of the charter class of Hillsborough Community College and attended the University of Tampa.

I am a retired business woman, self-employed all my adult life. I started my first business at age 21 and by age 26 had opened my first jewelry store at a regional mall.

I currently serve as a board member of The Spring of Tampa Bay and serve on the Advisory Council of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. I have previously served on the board of the Ybor City State Museum, the Executive Committee for Hillsborough Community College's Festival of the Moving Image and Co-Curator of International Art Works at the Hillsborough Community College Gallery.

As your City Council member, I chair the Transportation Committee and serve on the Arts Council, Public Transportation Commission, Public Art Committee, Tampa Theater and the Council of Governments. During my time on City Council I have brought forward Resolutions creating the Citizens Advisory Committee on Cultural Assets as an Economic Engine and the Domestic Registry. Additionally, I brought to Council the EB-5 Investment Program, the creation of an alcoholic beverage placard and a special use in the City's zoning code so citizens can legally foster rescue animals. 

I was married to my late husband, Juan R. Capin, for 44 years. I have one daughter, Jessica Lynn, who is married to Mark Dion. My grandson, Myles, is two years old. 

It is a privilege for me to serve the citizens of the City of Tampa and I will dedicate all my efforts and energy to this task during my term in office.
