Community Spotlight: Kelly Sue
Since her own children were in school, Kelly Sue has been giving back to her community. Not only was she volunteering at Oviedo High School, Jackson Heights, and Stenstrom Elementary, but once her children were older, she served on the Hope Helps Board of Directors and currently works on the Sham Rock n’ Run 5k Committee.
One would think that her plate was full, but the minute she was approached about an opening on the Oviedo Police Foundation Board, she immediately wanted to be involved.
Meet Kelly Sue
Kelly didn’t always reside in Florida, but you can’t tell that by the way she loves the city of Oviedo and surrounding areas. She became a resident in 2000 and settled right in with her husband and kids. Now with four grandchildren of her own, she wants to help keep this city safe and sound for these future generations.
Kelly works alongside her daughter, Tori Myers, at Stonebreaker Home Team at Re/Max Town and Country. Since she’s been a resident for 21 years, she knows the area and can find homes that fit anyone’s needs.
Because they are teamed with a bigger realty company, the Stonebreakers have unique access to top homes, worldwide reach, and cutting edge technology that can make home buying and selling a streamlined process.
In the current market, where homes are selling fast, it’s important to have a team who knows the ins and outs of the business. Since Kelly is also a resident, she is able to provide the insight you need to grab your dream home.
Because she is so involved with the community and our foundation, we wanted to ask her a few questions so the residents can get to know her better!
What about the Oviedo community means the most to you?
I love that no matter how crazy things get, we have a community that will band together to help. Not only that, I really enjoy that our community is still small enough that I can go to Publix and see someone familiar!
What are your top three restaurants in Oviedo?
The fun thing about Oviedo is all of the options. There can be favorites in the morning for donuts/breakfast, favorites for a business lunch or a brunch, and then favorites for happy hour and appetizers or a full-on dinner.
There is no real top three, but I am really enjoying the new restaurant Aurora in Celeste Hotel on UCF property!
What are your top three things to do in Oviedo?
When company comes into town, a must is Black Hammock Fish Camp for airboat rides and to count the gators in the lake. I also enjoy walking the bike and nature trails in town and checking out the different neighborhoods.
How did you get involved with the Oviedo Police Foundation?
My husband, Jeff, is retired from Orange County Sheriff’s Office so I have a special love toward law enforcement. Jim Gordon and I used to serve on the Board at Hope Helps and had a good working relationship.
When the Police Foundation had a Board opening, Jim gave me a call and it was an immediate yes from me!
What about OPF made you want to stay involved?
The love and respect for law enforcement. It’s rewarding to help them when you know they are always out helping others.
Thank You, Kelly Sue!
It’s important for people to know that, besides the realty business and your work with OPF, that you’re truly passionate about the community. Your volunteering efforts over the last 21 years speak volumes about your dedication to making our city a better place.
Thank you for valuing what we do and for doing your part with our police officers to keep them safe, like they do every day for our community.
