Elaine CollinsAssistant Manager - Inside

Hometown: Homer, New York

I was born and raised in the little town of Homer, NY, then lived in the Rochester, NY area where my husband, John, and I raised our two children; a daughter now living in Connecticut with her husband; and a son still living in the Rochester area. No grandchildren... yet. We purchased our home in The Villages in 2005 and visited several times a year until we were able to move here full-time in 2010. We both love golf and play as often as possible.

Professionally, I spent many years working in the telecommunications industry then for Xerox in a mix of positions mostly technology and/or customer service related.
