Name: Peter Ferrer
Occupation: U.S. Army Recruiter
Name of business/workplace: U.S. Army Recruiting Station Ocala
When not working, I . . . Spend quality time with my wife and kids, riding my mountain bike in the beautiful trails that Ocala has to offer.
What I like most about living in Ocala: The amazing support towards our veteran community.
My biggest pet peeve: unorganized people.
One word that summarizes my philosophy of life: Loyalty
If you could have a superhuman power, it would be. . . the power to heal. I want to be able to give a lot of people a second opportunity in life.
Community cause nearest my heart: Child education. Since education not only impacts the individual but also the society, I believe that finding new ways to improve the quality of our kids’ education will secure a bright future for them and our society.
A guilty pleasure of mine: Spending a lot of money on bike parts.
Any person in history I could have a dinner date with, and why: Stanley Martin Lieber (Stan Lee), creator of what we know today as Marvel Comics. I grew up enjoying his art and now I have the opportunity to share his amazing work with my kids.
Favorite part of my profession: Being able to connect with the community and change peoples’ lives.
