Katie's family moved to Boca Raton in 1970 where she later attended Palm Beach Community College and FAU. Katie is the Founder of, 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. Thank you Katie both interviews were very informative it’s fantastic that the citizens have this opportunity to hear from the candidates themselves. It’s very helpful to get some insight on their philosophies, great job!

    I was able to spend some time with Kim Do yesterday I was extremely impressed with her poise and her passion to help a city that she’s only lived in for a short period of time. It’s impressive that Kim completely understands the commitment that she’s about to make and is willing to do whatever it takes to make a change for the better. She is ready to take the school board on from day one and hold them accountable. Kim completely understands that it’s both the city Council and the school board‘s responsibility to work together to help us fix our schools. Kim Do has my vote !!!!!!!!!

    Best regards,

  2. Clarification I didn’t realize I posted this on Monica‘s interview , I am also voting for Monica Mayotte they are not running against each other obviously. I feel these two ladies along with commissioner O’Roake will put the best interests of the citizens first. I also believe that the three of them together truly care about finding a solution once and for all for our schools.

  3. First, thank you Monica, for stepping up to the call for real community service.

    Regarding our parks, one of the beautiful things about Boca Raton is the natural beach front and environment. Residents should really re-think the current proposal of creating Rutherford Park into a boat ramp facility. In my opinion, mixing canoes, manatee, and power boats is an environmental mistake. What’s your opinion?

    Finally, I hope you will support joint efforts by the City and the District to capture more “green space” quicker. Now, that we have purchased Ocean Breeze (never a City priority, when it could have been), how will you support the surrounding re-development and the needed infrastructure updates?
