Shemir Wiles

Shemir Wiles is a true Floridian, born and raised in Spring Hill. After receiving a certificate from her fifth-grade teacher that said she would be a journalist in 20 years, she decided that was what she would be when she grew up. Shemir attended the University of South Florida in Tampa and majored in magazine journalism. After graduating with honors in 2007, she began a career in newspaper in Citrus County where she worked for five years before joining the Akers team. Shemir’s hobbies include sleeping, waking up and going back to sleep, tending to two very demanding cats, people-watching, playing dance games on her Wii, shopping entirely too much, and reading… when she isn’t sleeping.
