Tina, and her husband Derek, have five children, of which one is school-aged and attends a Brevard Public School.  They are a BPS family with 3 Melbourne Bulldog graduates and 2 Satellite Scorpion graduates! Tina attended DeLaura Middle School and Satellite High School. 

Community Service


Tina currently serves on the board of The Children's Hunger Project & AMI Kids (serving youth with troubled pasts).  She is the past president of Sally's Friends (a non-profit addiction recovery home for mothers), the past president of Indialantic PTO and she serves as the youth Sunday School teacher at her church. She volunteers with Junior Achievement of the Space Coast and Brevard Schools Foundation. 



Tina has reserved one day a month to walk in the shoes of Brevard Public School employees.  Here are some of the BPS employee roles that she has experienced: substitute teacher, cafeteria worker, school media specialist, and riding along with a bus driver for the day.  She shadowed the facilities team and operated a front-end loader and other heavy equipment. These opportunities have allowed Tina to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges each employee group faces.
