For this month’s Nona Your Neighbor, we spoke with Lynn Sheffield, Lake Nona local business owner and entrepreneur. She’s passionate about her work, family, and the Lake Nona area.
NHN: What brought you to Lake Nona?
LS: My husband is Orlando born, and we had the opportunity to move back after 35 years and took it!
NHN: How long have you lived here?
LS: It will be two years this June!
NHN: Where are you from originally?
LS: I’m originally from Canada but have lived in the USA since 1997. I am now a dual citizen, having become an American citizen in 2012! My whole family still lives in Canada!
NHN: What do you do for work?
LS: I am an entrepreneur and work a couple of businesses from home! I am [a] representative for two health and wellness companies that provide pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements and CBD oil and hemp products. And I am also the vice president of HeadBed International. We have a salon accessory called HeadBed, which is a head and neck support cushion that provides the ultimate comfort and safety for a hair stylist’s client at the shampoo bowl.
NHN: What is your favorite thing in Lake Nona?
LS: Lake Nona is an amazing place to live. I love the focus on health and fitness this community continues to embrace. We chose Lake Nona because of the USTA National Training facility as my 13-year-old son is a tennis player!
NHN: What are you most excited to have in the Nonahood?
LS: It’s been exciting to see the growth in the short time we have been here. Always great to see new restaurants come in as we love to eat out. Looking forward to more shopping, [a] movie theater and more fun outdoor activities!!!!
NHN: What do you think the future is for Lake Nona?
LS: Lake Nona is definitely positioning itself as a frontrunner in innovation in both the medical and sports performance sectors. As a result, it’s attracting a lot of other businesses and creating jobs! Growth is good!
NHN: If you could tell one thing to someone considering moving here, what would that be?
LS: Don’t wait to consider Lake Nona as your future home!!!
