About Dorothy

Dorothy DeMichele has worked as a marketing and public relations professional as well as a licensed realtor in Naples, Florida, for 40 years, having moved there from her hometown Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. She has dedicated much of her real estate career to helping senior citizens. She has lived in Germany for several years and has been an avid student of languages--French, Spanish, Italian, and German. 


Dorothy remains an active member of several professional and charitable organizations in Naples. She was a director of the local chapter of Civitan International and remains active with the local chapter in fundraising, raising awareness and enhancing lives of the developmentally disabled. 


Dorothy has sponsored many impoverished Maya children through Adopt-a-Village over her years of involvement with the organization, helping to ensure that they received food, clothing, and education. Dorothy also brings a little bit of Guatemala and the Maya handiwork to her local Naples area by offering handmade items in trade for donations to further our educational programs for Maya children.


Dorothy joined Adopt-a-Village’s board of directors in 2020 to give back to the organization and its president, who she says has been a great source of inspiration to her for more than 25 years.
