Jim and Kelly are from Colorado and enjoy trading in our winter parkas for shorts and t-shirts. Jim grew up in an Army family and spent some of his childhood in Virginia Beach, and Kelly is a native Southern Californian who moved to land-locked Colorado in her mid-twenties. We decided to buy our retirement home on Marco in August 2020 after owning a townhome in Naples for the three prior years. Jim has spent most of his career in telecommunications and currently works as a Telecom Manager while Kelly is with Charles Schwab as a Treasury Manager. Both of us look forward to the day when we can list our new occupations as “retired”. Between the two of us, we have four girls, ranging in age from 19 to 26, and all of them live in different states in the western US. Jim has been boating most of his life and really enjoys being out on the water and fishing. Kelly was introduced to boating when she met Jim six years ago and also loves to be on the water, along with the opportunities it provides for shelling, fishing, dolphin watching, turtle encounters, and enjoying a good book in the sunshine. We look forward to spending time in paradise and meeting new people with the Marco Bay Yacht Club.
