Michele Jacobs -Corporate Director of Marketing and Operations at The Forbes Company/The Gradens Mall - Palm Beach BeautyPast life: I was in retail for almost 20 years. I worked at Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue. You either love retail or hate it. I really liked it.

Life influencer: I had a supervisor-boss at Bloomingdale’s who had an amazing ability to impact people. She had a big heart, was a tough businesswoman, and was very assertive. She always made you feel you could do more than you thought.

Palm Beach haunts: The Gardens Mall and The Cooper. I live in North County, and I don’t feel I have to go south of Northlake Boulevard.

Signature cocktail: Wine. I love Cakebread Chardonnay.

Dream dinner guest: Julia Child

Favorite keepsake: I have a little jar of rocks my husband found on the beach that look like hearts.

Stress reliever: I love to run and walk long distances. And I love to bake. I’ll bake anything: cookies, cakes, pies—it’s relaxing.

Life goal: For my son to graduate college and to have a successful life

Next adventure: Celebrating my twentieth wedding anniversary in Europe
