Connie was the 2009 President of Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay (RTTB), an organization that repairs homes for those in need. RTTB typically remodels or rebuilds some 30 homes a year. But Connie decided she could do even more and when she was president, RTTB remodeled a whopping 72 homes. Connie is also the 2012 president of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay so she understands that home owners cherish their four-legged family members too. During the real estate downturn, she helped families who were losing their homes to foreclosure find new shelter that would take them and dogs and cats.
