Community Bank of Florida is proud to celebrate Denise Tarafa’s 15th Anniversary as a member of their Financial Family. Mrs. Tarafa is a Retail Banking Officer, as well as the manager of the Quail Roost Office. Her office is located at 19990 SW 177th Avenue, and she is often seen visiting local nurseries and farms.
Mrs. Tarafa is a graduate of Coral Gables High School and received her Associate’s degree in Business Administration from Miami-Dade College. She is originally from New York City and currently resides in the Redlands with her husband, George. In 2007, she was presented The President’s Volunteer Award, “in recognition and appreciation of her commitment to strengthening our Nation and for making a difference through volunteer service.” Denise and George have been volunteering for the American Red Cross for several years and have dedicated over 4,000 service hours. She is also a team leader of the South Dade Red Cross Disaster Assistance Team, a Red Cross advisory member and a member of the South Dade Red Cross Ball committee.
When Denise is not banking or responding to Red Cross calls, she enjoys spending time with her daughters and grandchild, reading novels and boating. When asked about working in the Quail Roost area, Denise stated, “Living and working in Homestead has given me the opportunity to appreciate and see first-hand the importance of agriculture to our country. It is exciting to see the process, from tilling the land, the sprouting seeds and the beauty of the harvest.”
