Dana Greyson

Dana Greyson was born and raised in Washington state, across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. Today, she lives on a sailboat, and — while still an American citizen — travels around the world with her husband, Wayne Seitz. The couple met in 2005.

Deirdre Clayton was widowed at age 30 with two young children, while her career path led back to where she wanted ever since she was a teenager — to help people.

Today, she’s a guidance counselor in a Jacksonville middle school.


Kim Stordahl grew up all over the United States, thanks to her father’s management career.

Following in her father's footsteps, Stordahl went into management, moving with her husband to Jacksonville. That’s when she decided she wanted to do something different.

Winston Allen is, is in his own words, a “triathlete for life.” He started working out at age 9 to keep bullies away. Today, at 85, he’s a world champion triathlete who’s getting ready to defend his title.

Tom Nuijens grew up in Fort Lauderdale, waterskiing and surfing. His family was devoted to good food.

“We all loved dinner hour, which is kind of unusual for younger kids,” he says. “My father was the cook of the family. My sister is an accomplished cook, and my nephew is a James Beard Award chef.”

Elaine Pace went from being an honor’s student with a college scholarship to living in her car for most of a year.  Despite her share of ups and down, Elaine considers herself incredibly fortunate.

Anthony Johnson played football from high school through an 11-year NFL career. Today, he’s the Jacksonville Jaguars’ chaplain, and possibly the most low-key former NFL player you’ll ever meet.

He’s an Indiana native who went to Notre Dame on a scholarship. He had, at that time, a single focus to his life: “Playing football, my passion since I was young,”

He says, “I played through high school and was good enough to get a football scholarship to Notre Dame. I graduated in 1990 and was drafted in the second round by the Indianapolis Colts.”

Yuriko Stowers was born in Yokohama, Japan, and grew up near Tokyo. But she knew from an early age that wanted to be something or somewhere different. She achieved that dream –  today, Yuriko is a firefighter in Northeast Florida.

Pete Ancone loves cars, writing stories, and running track. The death of his father pushed him into journalism to support his family, but years later, he wrote his first novel … about running.
