Kelly S. Executive Leadership, Financial Services Industry
JAX is not only a beautiful place to live, but there truly is a sense of community here. I live in the Nocatee area and make the 20-minute commute into downtown Jacksonville for my work in the financial services industry. Since relocating here about five years ago, we have truly formed lifelong friendships with the people in our neighborhood and professional settings. My husband and I enjoy the way the business community and nonprofit organizations partner together to make Jacksonville better for all residents. People really care here and go out of their way to make a difference for others. I am fortunate to be able to experience what JAX offers in its welcoming community.
I relocated to Jacksonville from Philadelphia for a job promotion. My husband and I moved here with a two-year old and have since had two more children. JAX is the perfect place for raising a family! Jacksonville is the only home that they know and there is so much to do here with kids. One of our favorite places to go is St. Augustine – the historic nature and charm of the area is great to visit, with or without kids! We love having the option to take our kids to the beach one weekend or go to the MOSH (Museum of Science & History), Jaguars or Jumbo Shrimp games the next. JAX truly is a beautiful place to live, and we look forward to making many more special memories here.
