Thanks to our #guardianonthego workplace strategy, Kathy is a lifelong #jerserygirl in the process of taking the Florida plunge and plans to split her time between South Seaside Park, NJ and Winter Garden, FL where she can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks at night with her husband and two adult sons when they visit.
