SEMINOLE - It was just a little over one year ago that Ann Toney-Deal stepped in to fill the shoes of Frank Edmunds, Seminole’s inaugural city manager, when he retired in August 2015.

“The first year absolutely flew by,” she said. “It’s hard to believe I’ve worked here for an entire year. It’s been a wonderful professional and personal experience.”

Prior to coming to Seminole, Toney-Deal most recently served as director of administration and communications for the Florida Veterinary Medical Association, and before that as city manager of Haines City in Polk County for 19 years. She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration at the University of Florida. She’s also a past president of the Florida City and County Management Association and is a member of the International City and County Management Association.

SEMINOLE - Jessica Yuen always had a passion for cooking and working with children. But she chose a different path when it came to her career, working as an IT professional for 13 years.

Then, two years ago, she threw a birthday party for her daughter, Kaleah, now 8. She invited over a group of her daughters’ friends for a pizza party where they made the pies themselves, kneading the dough and selecting the toppings.

“The kids loved it and something just clicked for me,” Yuen said. “I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up.”
