Founder, Modern Boca Mom

Michelle Olson-Rogers, Age 39

I am a Boca Raton native who lived in New York City for almost ten years…and then came back to South Florida after having my first child. I’m a Boca boomerang of sorts! After spending my twenties in Manhattan, I continue to crave the culture, events, activities and businesses that were available to me and my family in the city…right here in South Florida.

My family and I are taking advantage of everything Florida has to offer!

But how to narrow it down?


Helping Boca moms up their lifestyle and parenting game since 2014…

After living back in Boca for several months, I could not find a comprehensive, organized, online source of information when it came to activities and businesses targeting the city-oriented “mom set.”  From word of mouth, mommy to mommy, Modern Boca Mom was born.  Here, you will find tried and true RECOMMENDED local activities, businesses, services, amenities, dining and travel options for the modern and stylish South Florida Mommy, whether you live here or are simply visiting our paradise!

I’m a Modern Boca mom to 8 year-old daughter #dailybocaavery. I am passionate about building this website and working as the Director of Communications & Community Outreach at Grandview Preparatory School.  Much of the information I share comes from speaking to my fellow Boca moms or sometimes, from fabulous MBMom contributors!

Whether we have large or small family budgets, I realized that Boca moms are all searching for the latest and greatest for ourselves and our families. Thanks for visiting!

After calling the @carnival Paradise ? home for the past 5 days, I’m back in #bocaraton ? with my head spinning and my heart ? full from all the knowledge and friendships I gained at the first ever @permissiontohustle Retreat. Special thanks to @audreymcclellan and @verasweeney for organizing an amazing #blogger mastermind (with speakers who made my brain ? tired in the best possible way)! And to Carnival for welcoming 40 ladies crazy (or smart?) enough to have chosen to make their living on the internets. ? Now to get to work! #pthcarnival #carnivalpartner #cruiselife #fallinlilly #momboss #mompreneur #bocablogger #bocaratonblogger #mbmtravel #carnivalcruise #carnivalcruising #mbmtravel #momblogger #westerncaribbeancruise #girlstrip #girlpower #carnivalparadise
