Born during Hurricane Donna, Phyllis was reared on a Pine Valley Dairy II, a farm on the County Line Road and Interstate-4 between Plant City and Lakeland, Florida, USA. Attended Saint Joseph's Catholic School (1-8 except 3rd), 3rd grade at Winston Elementary, 9th grade at Kathleen Junior High School, and finished Kathleen High School. She obtained an AA at Hillsborough Community College, Plant City Campus, BSA ABNRE at University of Florida, MEd at University of Central Florida, as well as a EdD in Curriculum and Instruction there.

2015 08 01--I awoke thinking of our elopement in 1983 on this date. It was our secret. We had a wedding the following Thanksgiving Day with family. No one knew. We eloped while I was at an education convention in Orlando, FL at the Sheraton Twin Towers, halfway between his job in Gainesville, FL at Publix and my new job teaching agriculture in Lake Placid, FL, with his kids in tow. I had just graduated from the University of Florida College of Agriculture with a bachelor's degree in Agriculture and Extension Education and he said we would wed when I had a contract. A notary public married us then and preacher wed us later. No photos for the day, but great memories.

Taught agriculture at Lake Placid High School in Highlands County, FL and at Westridge Middle School in Orange County, FL. Math and English at Conway Middle School in Orange County. All grades and subjects in Hospital/Homebound for Orange County Public Schools.

Worked in education most of her career, but also in many other areas. She owned two publishing companies. ROC EdTech with colleagues at Nova Southeastern University. Olmstead Publishing LLC was her own. [www.OlmsteadPublishing.com/ www.OlmsteadPublishing.com] and [www.facebook.com/OlmsteadPublishing/ on Facebook].
