Lou and Bridget Yovino settled in Parkland 18 years ago to raise their family. Their three children are Louie, 22, Nick, 19, and Ava 16. Their two Dobermans, Roman and Angel, complete the family circle.
Previously a dental hygienist, Bridget is the CEO of the household while Lou is the President of The Printers Printer, Inc (est. 1987). Lou tells us, “I’m a Coral Springs guy. I was raised there and graduated from Coral Springs High School class of ‘82.”
He goes on to say, “Our 3 kids grew up in Parkland all going through the Catholic school system, Mary Help Christians and then on to St. Thomas Aquinas.” The Yovino kids and their parents are a well-known Parkland sports family, and have enjoyed almost all of the recreational sports offered as Dad and Mom were both coaches encouraging their competitive play. Lou says, “I’ve coached Parkland Flag football, Parkland Rangers tackle football, Parkland Lacrosse, Parkland baseball and I play Buzzards Lacrosse with the men’s league (who just won a state championship) which originally started as a father / son pick-up game here in Parkland.” Bridget coached girls lacrosse as well.
All 3 kids have achieved notable accolades at St Thomas Aquinas High School. Louie: 3 time US Lacrosse All-American, State Champion, D1 scholarship with 4.8 GPA, Nick: 2 time US Lacrosse All-American, 2 time State Champion, D1 Scholarship, 4.85 GPA. Ava: US Lacrosse All-American as a freshman (sophomore year derailed with COVID), she has a 5.0 GPA and is currently being courted for a D1 Scholarship.
With the boys away at The University of Central Florida (UCF), Louie is currently in his 5th year studying Engineering (his favorite subjects are math & physics). Nick is in his 2nd year also studying Engineering(his favorite subject Science). Ava recently began her junior year at St. Thomas Aquinas, and her favorite subject math.
This close knit bunch are friendly, warm and lots of fun! When everyone is together, they enjoy riding motorcycles, working out / lifting weights, movie nights, and as much pool time as possible.
Bridget says, “Parkland has been a great community to raise our family! It has a small town ‘Family’ feel… Everyone knows your name. We appreciate all of the close friends we’ve made over the years.”
Lou tells us, “The pandemic has given us more family time and a chance to accomplish more home projects. We’ve all become movie experts, and we have a big sense of appreciation that we are all healthy!“
