Principal Blogger and Community Relations
Sharon and her husband moved to St. Petersburg in 2008 from Providence, R.I. She is native of Western NY where she majored in English at the State University College of New York at Buffalo. Business ties and the desire to enjoy the “St. Petersburg’s lifestyle”, notably sunny skies, warm temperatures, great restaurants and friendly people, are what motivated Sharon and John to settle here.
Sharon brings over 25 years of business, non-profit and administrative experience to The Mesimer Team. She was Executive Director of the Westminster Senior Center (Providence, RI) and operated a successful consulting business as a grant writer for numerous Rhode Island non-profit organizations. These organizational skills are what make her an important part of our team’s ability to process the detailed paperwork involved in real estate transactions and ensure compliance with Florida real estate regulations and law. Sharon also is the principal contributor to our blog.
Sharon is a member of The Stuart Society (MOFA), St. Petersburg’s Women’s Chamber of Commerce, The Women’s Service League, St. Petersburg Preservation Society, the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood and the League of Women Voters. She is an avid bridge player and enjoys taking long walks through the Old Northeast and yoga classes at St. Pete Yoga.
