A native Floridian, Angela Hoffman grew up in Tequesta and enjoys boating, snorkeling, paddle boarding and relaxing on the sandbar. She lives in Hobe Sound with her husband; Jason, and two daughters; Laney and Alina.
After graduating from the University of Florida in 2007 with a degree in Recreation, Parks and Tourism and specializing in event planning, Angela took a position at the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County gaining experience in meeting planning and business development.
In 2008, Angela followed her passion for public recreation by joining a non-profit organization based out of Martin County Parks & Recreation, called Project Northland, a substance abuse prevention program for teenagers. When the Parks & Recreation Department re-organized, Angela was asked by the Park & Recreation director to transition to a facility management position in Jensen Beach at The Mansion at Tuckahoe. Here she continued event management for fundraisers, weddings, and historic tours. She created and implemented the business, marketing and risk management plans for the newly restored historic venue.
Most recently as the CEO of the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce, Angela tackled advocacy projects to help small businesses, developed valuable educational seminars and networking events, and managed a number of large community events that showcased the special community culture while boosting the local economy. In her eight years of serving this role, the chamber grew in size, programs offered and in their ability to link business leaders with elected officials by developing a Government Affairs Committee.
In July 2019, Angela joined the dynamic and growing team at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County as the Chief Advancement Officer. Through her service as a volunteer for the Hobe Sound Early Learning Center and as a Governor’s appointee to the Children’s Services Council, Angela developed a passion for doing whatever it takes to help youth reach their full potential.
In 2012, Angela was appointed by the County Commissioners to serve on the Community Redevelopment Agency’s Neighborhood Advisory Committee. She currently serves as the president-elect for the Business Development Board of Martin County. She was nominated for the Character Counts Employee Pillar of Character Award and the Soroptimist International of Stuart Women of Distinction Award 2013 and 2014.
Angela is a member of the Young Professionals of Martin County and the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals.
Angela’s personal goal is to show her daughters that to be an effective community leader one must simply elevate the degree in which they empower others.
