The Specktator, First Coast Connect Contributor

Kerry Speckman shares her unique perspective and observations on people, places and events on Florida's First Coast (aka Northeast Florida) — and beyond.

Personally, Kerry is the winner of Jacksonville's 2012 Dancing With the Stars, and holds the world record for Fastest Time To Finish A 15K Race While Twirling A Baton, so she's got that going for her.

She appears Thursdays on First Coast Connect to preview upcoming weekend events.
