Stephen and Merrilee Good settled in Parkland with their two daughters more than a year ago. Courtney, 7, and Madison, 5, are always busy with dance, basketball, soccer, and reading. Courtney just started playing volleyball and loves it! She is starting the second grade at Mary Help of Christians. Madison begins kindergarten at the same school. The Good’s yellow lab, Belle, completes the family circle.
Stephen, a financial planner, and Agency Manager, says, “I love to work with individuals, families, and small business owners to help them chart a course for financial success.” He is also excited to begin teaching financial education classes for the Parkland community at the PREC starting this September. Stephen tells us, “As well as being involved with the community, I coach the kids through the I9 sports in basketball and soccer.”
Merrilee is a physical therapist working at a local hospital. She is passionate about helping her patients get back to doing the things they love to do in their lives. Stephen is obviously smitten with his wife and gives her an enormous amount of credit. “Merrilee is the glue that keeps us all from going crazy! She loves to spend time volunteering at the school when she can. She is the best cheerleader for the family anyone can ask for!”
When they aren’t at school or work, the Good family enjoys swimming in their pool, taking vacations, going to the movies together, and spending time at parks and playgrounds in the area. On a recent cruise vacation, the girls did family karaoke and sang in front of almost 200 people!
Merrilee says, “Our kids love all the friends they have made in our neighborhood, and how easy it is to take family bike rides around the area. Stephen and I love how convenient living here is. Everything we need is only a few minutes away.”
The Goods attend services at Mary Help of Christian Catholic Church.
