Scott Kiefer

I moved to Ocala when I was only in the 5th grade. I grew up attending Eighth Street Elementary, Osceola Middle, and Forest High School. The only time I’ve been absent from Ocala is when I left to obtain my Business Administration degree from Stetson University. I love Ocala. I met and married my wife, Bridget, here and it is  where we raised our daughter and son, Avery and Riley. It is important to me that I invest in this community by being a solid business person who provides a good and trustworthy service to clients.

Our family attends First United Methodist Church where Bridget and I have volunteered with the youth group and have taught children’s Sunday School. I served as treasurer of the Vanguard High School band boosters for two years. For nine years I coached my son’s baseball team at Highlands and Babe Ruth team at Rotary.

I have been involved in our Chamber of Commerce and active in the business networking group, BNI, where I previously served as the secretary/treasurer. I am a board member of the Estate Planning Council of Marion County. I am on the board of NAIFA- Florida (National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors), where I served as treasurer for two years. I have served in the Ocala Kiwanis Club in many offices, including the president. I am a graduate of Leadership Ocala (Class VIII) because I wanted to know more about Ocala and use that knowledge to help lead others.

My hope is that people will choose to make Ocala their home because it is a caring and connected community. As a business person, I owe it to people to provide personalized services in which they can trust and on which they can rely. I hope to be able to serve you, too.
