I spent this past weekend in South Florida for my birthday. My family came along for the celebration. While planning out our daily schedule and places to visit; my daughter has the cool idea of locating ‘Tremont Towing’.
Tremont is the towing company featured on South Beach Tow. The show is an American truTV reality television series that portrays dramatized reenactments of the day-to-day business of Tremont Towing. Although the program is fictionalized, Tremont Towing is a real Miami towing company. The series premiered on July 20, 2011. The first part of Season 2 premiered on September 19, 2012, and returned after a four month hiatus on May 15, 2013.
While there we ran up on Robbie and got to take a peek inside the office. Yes, the company does exist and they really tow cars. Robbie was getting calls while he chatted with us. He was so nice; he helped me adjust my camera, took pictures and talked with the kids.
My daughter is a huge fan of Bernice and was disappointed to find out she is only there when they are filming. But, for good reasons. I found out that Bernice is a school teacher. Yes, Bernice works with kids in Florida. After hearing this, the blogger in me, got to digging and this is what I found out.
Bernice of South Beach Tow’s real name is Lakatriona Brunson.
Lakatronia graduated from Miami Northwest High School in 1995, she also attended Tennessee State University.
She played basketball at both.
According to her LinkedIn profile Miss Brunson works (possibly worked) for the Miami-Dade Public County School System. The official site for Parkway Middle School lists her as the SCSI teacher. The SCSI teacher in Miami means that Bernice handles kids when they’re sent to in-school suspension. SCSI stands for, “School Center for Special Instruction.” I know I wouldn’t mess with Miss Brunson after getting in trouble!
She also once worked as a P.E. teacher at Ellingson Heights Elementary.
Bernice has played defensive end for the Miami Fury of the Independent Women’s Football League.
Bernice has a Tennessee connection…Cool. Season 3 will premiere on October 30, 2013.
