Meet Michelle, Shearwater’s Lifestyle Director
January 25th, 2022
Shearwater is a new home community located in St. Augustine, Florida – but it offers much more than just stunning new homes. A plethora of resort-style amenities and a healthy-living lifestyle await. But one of the most exciting parts of life at Shearwater? The lifestyle programming, which is made possible by our full-time Lifestyle Director. Meet Michelle Sharp!
Michelle grew up in an Army family and has been in Jacksonville, Florida for nearly six years – just down the road from St. Augustine. In her free time, she loves to do everything from white water rafting and kayaking to exploring the beautiful hot springs in the area. She also tries to spend as much time with her sons and grandchildren as possible, although her rambunctious English Bulldog keeps her plenty busy.
Michelle is thrilled to be at Shearwater, and is looking forward to taking advantage of the amenities to plan events for residents. “The facilities at Shearwater is what first attracted me to the community,” she said, “having the event lawn, outpost and amenity center to plan events was appealing.”
She’s hoping to get residents outdoors and into the fresh air. “With the trails, event lawn, outpost, kayak launch and other green spaces, there is more than enough room to get folks out of their homes and commune with one another,” she said. Building a sense of community is important, too. “My goals are to provide programming that residents of all ages and abilities want to participate in, allowing families the opportunity to mingle amongst one another to create life-long bonds,” she explained.
Fun runs, block parties and fitness events are a few of the activities on Michelle’s list for the coming year. She’s also planning on expanding some annual favorites, like the Halloween party and Winterfest. While most of Shearwater’s events are family-friendly, Michelle is also thinking about adding in more adults-only activities. “I will definitely keep planning family events. But there is also a need for some adults-only programming options where residents can take a break from their parenting responsibilities to have a little fun with their friends and neighbors,” she said.
Michelle is thrilled to be part of the Shearwater family. “I think prospective residents should know no matter what type of home you are looking for, you’ll be sure to find it in this master-planned community,” she said. “From growing families to retirees, there is a home for everyone at Shearwater. Quite simply, Shearwater is what home is supposed to feel like.”
