Today’s Islander: Patricia Gallagher

Hometown: Basking Ridge, N.J.

Occupation:Commercial property manager

Education:Master’s degree in criminal justice from Rutgers College

Family: Married to a retired law enforcement officer, with two grown daughters still living in New Jersey.

How she got to Marco: A friend lent the Gallaghers a place for their first wedding anniversary about 16 years ago, and before they left they bought a condo for themselves and became part-time visitors before moving full-time to Naples. They rent their Marco condo out. “Even though I live in Naples, my heart is in Marco Island,” Gallagher said.

Favorite place to go on Marco Island: “I go to Resident’s Beach. I love it. I own a condo, I bought it to get a Resident’s Beach pass.”

Words of wisdom: “Stay in the day. Enjoy each day.”
