In 2012, sisters Beth and Danielle decided to start a blog together called Palm Beach Lately. For over a decade now, they have shared their favorite Palm Beach finds with their readers including hotels, restaurants, and shops. They find inspiration around every corner of their coastal city.
Beth has always loved people and talking, so a degree in Public Relations and Event Planning was a natural fit. After earning her degree at the University of Florida, she moved to New York City to be the Public Relations and Event Coordinator for a boutique event company, but the sunshine state drew her back home. Beth moved back to Palm Beach where she began her own PR and Event Planning business. For the next eight years, she enjoyed planning events, and during that time, she and her sister created their blog.
Danielle has always been very creative and dreamed of owning her own business. So, after acquiring a Business Administration degree from the University of Florida, she enjoyed a brief stint working in New York City before heading home to plant roots with her college sweetheart. Danielle has worked in a variety of different fields in Palm Beach before eventually working on Palm Beach Lately full-time.
