Lara Strong, Education Committee Chair

    I grew up in a small town in upstate New York, called the Finger Lakes. I owned and operated three distinctly different businesses at the age of 20. However, my real dream was to live on the beach in Florida (I had seen pictures). At the age of 37, I made that idea come true. I decided to sell my operations in upstate and head south. I have been living on the beach in Fort Lauderdale for 21 years now.

So, what have I been doing then? Great question I entered the higher education community in 2001 and have not looked back. I have worked as a Director and Executive Director and as a student too! Since 2002 I have earned my associate degree, bachelor’s degree, and master’s degree. I am currently completing my doctorate degree in education and leadership.
