Wei and her husband Tom have been married for 27 years. They moved to Pensacola in 1994 and have lived in Gulf Breeze since 1998. They have two sons, Tyler, who will be graduating from the University of Florida in May 2018, and Jonathan, a junior at Gulf Breeze High School. Wei is a member of Community Life United Methodist Church.
As a former teacher at Tate High School in Escambia County, Wei taught biology and chemistry for seven years. Before that, Wei was the gifted Math and Science teacher at Bear Lakes Middle School in West Palm Beach and started her career teaching high school biology and chemistry on Long Island in New York. Through the years, Wei taught all middle and high school grade levels, as well as students from at-risk to advanced.
One of her happiest achievements was being named an Escambia County Teacher of the Year semifinalist for the 1998-1999 school year. It was a privilege to be recognized by her peers and the school district as an outstanding educator.
Wei has been an active volunteer and advocate not only for schools but also for the community, whether it is with the PTA, School Advisory Council, Gulf Breeze Will Do, Ronald McDonald House, The Miracle League of Santa Rosa County or Impact 100.
