TAMI MOORE – Park Manager
Tami grew up in Ohio until 4 years ago when her husband, Ty, decided they had enough of the cold winters. They sold their home and moved to warm, sunny Brooksville Florida. Between the 2 of them, they have 4 children and 2 miniature dachshunds. They enjoy spending their off-time either on their boat, at the beach, or with their friends. In 2001 Tami began her career in property management in Ohio working in Section 8 and Public Housing market. When she moved to Florida, she began working with Equity Lifestyle Properties as the Assistant Manager of a 782 site Mobile Home Community and 283 site RV Resort. During the 4 years with ELS she found that she has a passion for the RV community and the guests. This led her to the decision to join the team at Paradise Oaks as the Park Manager.
We are excited to welcome Tami to our Paradise Oaks family and look forward to integrating her leadership and knowledge into our park organization and community!
