Harriet is a proud Army brat who moved to Ocala almost three decades ago. She formerly was a reporter for the Ocala Star-Banner and now works for a local family-owned company. She serves in many capacities as an active member of Draw All Men Ministries Church and is president of the local chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.



I have a large family spread across the globe and technology keeps us connected.



I collect them and love finding new gems on the beach.



Prayer is a must in my daily life. God is my all.



Local bookstores and the Marion County Public Library are my happy places. Shout out to my book club “Sistahs.”


Ice Cream 

World Class Chocolate from Baskin-Robbins is a special treat.


My hairstylist 

Sharon Samuel, owner of Sharon’s Hair Creations, is vital in my busy life.



I have a diverse playlist, which changes depending on what’s going on.
