She was born and raised in the Midwest, growing up near Chicago. Upon graduation from GWU, she began working for Geico in D.C.
After much of my family relocated to Florida, I followed. Once I had sand in my shoes, there was no going back! At this point, I have spent half of my life in Florida!
Rebecca has lived in Weston for nearly 15 years. Currently, in addition to being co-owner of Weston Vida, she is busy with family, work, volunteering, and holding a position on the PTA Executive Board.
I feel such a sense of community here. I love going places in Weston and seeing so many familiar faces! We have a lot to be thankful for here in our community. Weston Vida is a fantastic way to showcase this great place where we live.

Moving away for several years, made me realize what a wonderful and special place South Florida is – I never stopped missing the weather, flora and fauna, and cultural diversity.
She has lived with her family in Weston for almost nine years.
We love it here – the focus on family, healthy living and fun. Weston Vida is a way to “share the love” and help maintain what’s special about our community.
