Her continued success is demonstrated through numerous awards including being recognized as one of the “25 Most Influential Business Women in South Florida” by the South Florida Business Journal.
Ms. McCauley also was a nominee for the Athena Award in Palm Beach County. She serves as a board member of GCI Worldwide Corp., and was a panelist at the Extraordinary Women Leading Change Conference.
