A fun fact about Simone is that she had a minor role as a flight attendant in the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The film was adapted from Hunter S. Thompson’s novel of the same name and was directed by one of her film heroes Terry Gilliam. While much of it ended up on the cutting room floor, she fondly remembers a fun time in her shared day of shooting with Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.
Simone has traveled to 25 countries, where she has volunteered, studied, biked, hiked and explored. She and her husband, attorney Rep DeLoach, are always planning their next adventure. They live in downtown St. Petersburg with their three adorable rescue cats Motce, Ellie and Smokey. What values are important to Simone? Loyalty, humility, compassion, integrity and service.
