Victoria Register
District 4
Alachua, Gilchrist, Flagler, Levy, Marion, Seminole, Volusia

Volusia County native, Victoria Register, represents District 4 on the Florida Farm Bureau State Women’s Committee. She and her fiancé, Brian, currently live in Holly Hill with their three pups, Malibu, Harley and Tucker. The couple plans to marry next fall.

Register is a sales and marketing specialist with FernTrust, Inc. in Volusia County, one of Florida’s major suppliers of cut foliage.

“I don’t think there is anything more rewarding than seeing finalized projects like garlands and wreaths being shipped to customers to use on some of the happiest days of their lives,” she said.

Register grew up on her family’s farm in Seville and some of her fondest childhood memories are fishing the lakes on her family’s farm and offshore with her dad.

She stated that shopping is another hobby she enjoys and joked that, “money seems to burn a hole in my wallet as soon as I get it.”

Her typical day is spent working in the office and her Saturdays are reserved for household chores. “I usually spend about an hour cooking dinner in the evenings,” she said.

“I do count myself extremely blessed to be engaged to Brian. He picks up a lot of slack with cooking and cleaning when it’s needed.”

In addition to her service on the State Women’s Committee, Register also serves as the Volusia County Young Farmers and Ranchers Chair which retains her a seat on the county board of directors. She is currently serving her last term on the State Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership Group.

Every year in the spring, she looks forward to Ag in the Classroom, “My absolute favorite activity of the year”, she stated. “I visit at least two-to-three schools in Volusia County each year,” she said.

Register encourages women in her district to join their local county Farm Bureau Women’s Committee by expressing the opportunity of making connections with likeminded women who continually give back to their communities.

“People might not remember all of the things I did or accomplished during my life, but I hope they can remember how I made them laugh and smile or how I made their gloomy day just a little bit brighter”, she said.

Her favorite recipe is Paula Deen’s Baked Enchilada Pie.
