Reading time: 5 mins Gumbo Limbo is often called a jewel in Boca Raton. Sadly, the setting for this “jewel of Boca Raton” is worn and outdated, and not much is being done about it.
Michele grew up in Miami sailing Biscayne Bay and moved to Boca Raton in 1998. Her electrical engineering degree from Duke University led to a varied career with Westinghouse and Siemens in business development and engineering service management among other roles. Currently she works on strategic initiatives for Boca-based Geosyntec Consultants. Having raised 3 young adults, she now enjoys cooking and travelling (pre-COVID!) in her spare time. A former trustee of Friends of Gumbo Limbo and past president, Michele began volunteering at Gumbo Limbo in 2003, and helped found the Sea Turtle Rehab Facility.
