Edith “Edie” Hewitt was born in Levittown, NY on July 20th, 1962. She spent her childhood in New York and recalls always being active in outdoor sports. Edie spent her days at the pool where her mother coached her and her two older sisters to the elite level of championship swimming and diving. At the age of 15 Edie and her family relocated to Orlando, Florida where she later graduated from Colonial High School. Edie started her career at 20 years old and took a job at Disney in the health insurance department. She also went to Winter Park Vo-Tech and completed courses in Medical Terminology, CPT Coding, and Medical Billing. A naturally hard worker Edie moved through the ranks quickly and was promoted to a Medical Claims Processor. After a 19 year tenure with Disney the health insurance department was outsourced and Edie began working for a local real estate company before joining the Leland Team in January 2006. Edie says that Leland is her second family and that she genuinely loves her job.
At home Edie takes care of her husband Dean and two dogs: Diesel and Biscuit. She loves to travel and has been to Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, and New Mexico to see the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Still an avid fan of the outdoors she enjoys fishing on her boat and waterskiing. She also went tandem skydiving in Deland and says it was the biggest thrill of her life and would do it again in a heartbeat.
