Name: Sky Wheeler
Occupation: Tourism development manager
Name of business/workplace: Ocala/Marion County Visitors and Convention Bureau
When not working, I . . . enjoy spending time with my family and traveling to concerts and sporting events. If it’s the summer, I am splashing in the pool with my family!
What I like most about living in Ocala: The people
My biggest pet peeve: Being late
One word that summarizes my philosophy of life: Fulfillment
If you could have a superhuman power, it would be. . . Teleportation – time is fleeting and anything I could do to have more of it would be the ultimate superpower.
Community cause nearest my heart: United Way – they help connect our community to resources and I am inspired by what they do through Strong Families and Reading Pals.
A guilty pleasure of mine: Coca-Cola from a soda fountain
Any person in history I could have a dinner date with, and why: My Dad. He died when I was 8 and it would be remarkable to talk to him about everything that has happened in my life since then, especially my husband and daughters.
Favorite part of my profession: Promoting the community that made me who I am. It can be easy to overlook the amazing things that are in your backyard, so I am thankful that I am in a position to see these things and share them with others.
If there is one thing I indulge too much in, that would be . . . Amazon Prime – it’s just too easy!
