With a love of hearing stories about what brought people to Vero Beach, her story goes like this…
”In 1978, after attending the Peach Bowl in Atlanta, GA where the UK Wildcats played, I was going on vacation with my mom and three sisters and were supposed to go to Daytona Beach. Well, when we got there it was raining and we jumped back in the car and said we are going to drive until the sun comes up and that is how we discovered Vero Beach!

Subsequently, my parents moved to Vero the next year and my sisters followed shortly thereafter so my whole family lived in Vero Beach. I always knew I would get to Vero from south Florida so when I had the opportunity to change jobs and work from home that was my ticket to move to Vero. At the time, my two boys were in 2nd and 4th grade and we haven’t looked back since.

Vero is a wonderful safe place to raise your children.” Her two boys are now 25 and 27, with having attended the University of Miami and FSU. “We are incredibly grateful to live in this little piece of paradise!”

Michelle attends the Community Church in Vero, and has volunteered on several committees. She enjoys staying fit by attending boot camps, walking, playing pickleball, golfing and enjoys all sports whether playing or as a spectator.
