Meet the First Lady
I am honored to serve the great people and state of Florida as your First Lady. Rick and I are proud of the unmatched beauty, the nearly 500-year heritage, and the hardworking people of Florida.
From Naples to the Panhandle, I think Florida is the most beautiful state and truly a land of opportunity. If you live here, I’m sure you are just as proud of our home state. If you are visiting, I welcome you to enjoy the splendor of our beaches, our fresh fruits and vegetables, and our many amazing vacation destinations.
As your First Lady, I love working with children – the future of Florida – and I hope to visit your local school or library someday soon. When you are in Tallahassee, I hope you will stop by to visit the Florida Governor’s Mansion. I would love to meet you.
First Lady Ann Scott is a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend. She met her husband for the first time during her senior year. High school sweethearts, they have been married for 42 years and have two married daughters, Allison and Jordan, and three grandsons, Auguste, Quinton and Sebastian.
After graduating from high school, Ann attended community college and worked full time, while Gov. Scott was in the Navy and in law school. Ann enjoys interior decorating and received her degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
An avid reader, the First Lady spends time visiting students at schools and libraries across Florida, encouraging them to read and to write. She believes that great readers become great learners, and early learning leads to academic success. As a mother, she also knows that healthy bodies make healthy minds. She urges Floridians of all ages to eat healthy and get out and play.
At every opportunity, Ann takes time to thank military children and families for the great sacrifices they make for the state and all Floridians. She has opened the Florida Governor’s Mansion for children to visit throughout the school year, and often will greet tours to share her personal stories of the home. Ann loves to showcase the beauty and history of the Mansion and invites all Floridians to visit the people’s house in Tallahassee.
Throughout their lives, Ann and Gov. Scott have been committed to their community locally and around the world. They support the Salvation Army, United Way, Naples Zoo, Children’s Museum of Naples, and World Vision, where the Scott family worked to create a primary health care system in Bunyala, Kenya. Together, they fund an entrepreneur contest at George Washington University where their daughter received her business degree. Ann also has donated her time to Liberty Youth Ranch, a home for abandoned, abused, neglected and orphaned children in Collier County.
