More Reptiles for Palm Harbor, Florida--A Salamander?!

It Ain't a Gecko...

Many locals may already know (since it's pretty big news around here!), that our own Tarpon Springs and Palm Harbor local icon--Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club has been purchased by Salamander Hospitality.  As if the aligators, snakes, and lowly anole aren't enough reptiles, now we've got a salamander, too! 

Entrepreneur Sheila Johnson, perhaps best known for founding the BET Network with her ex-husband, is the only woman to have a stake in not one, but three professional sports organizations--as managing partner of the WNBA's Washington Mystics, and as a partner in Lincoln Holdings, LLC, which has an interest in the NBA's Washington Wizards and NHL's Washington Capitals

Her hospitality background through Salamander is impressive, and her plans for renovations at the 30-year conference and golf destination are eagerly anticipated both within and outside of the resort.  As a ten-year veteran of the resort staff in my own past, as well as a member of the Brookmasters Toastmasters, housed onsite, I personally can't wait to see what Ms. Johnson has in store for us!

Welcome, Sheila!  I'll be watching...
