With a resume a mile long, and experience in Fortune 500 companies, the FBI and expertise in ethics, Boca voters have a chance to vote for someone without political ambition. Candidate for Seat A Kathy Cottrell sat down with Katie and talked about her expertise and drive to “give back to the place I love”.

Katie's family moved to Boca Raton in 1970 where she later attended Palm Beach Community College and FAU. Katie is the Founder of HaitianArt.com, a Boca Raton company which began in 1989 as a small art studio. Works by Haiti’s artists soon became part of a revolving exhibit at City Hall as well as the Boca Raton Library and Community Center. The gallery later moved to Delray Beach and broadened its base to include works by Eastern Cuban artists and Florida Highwaymen. Today her focus is on art consulting and internet art sales. She is on the board of the A.C.T.I.O.N. Foundation, a non-profit organization whose goal is to foster harmony between the Caribbean community and the United States, and currently serves as the Vice President of the Riviera Civic Association.


  1. Please ask Ms. Cottrell if she would be in favor of building a new pool at Meadow’s Park. Unfortunately, after several years of asking the Recreation Department, Boca Raton Beach and Park District and City Council, I was recently told that it was just now added to the ten year plan. I would like this project fast tracked as the current condition of the pool is way below Boca Raton standards. I look forward to an answer.
