Petagae Butcher | Vice President
Petagae Butcher grew up in South Florida and went to college at the University of Central Florida. After studying Management Information Systems she took a consulting job in Boca Raton. After 8 years she changed companies and decided to set off in a managerial position within a software company in Coral Springs. In 2017 she relocated back to Orlando to work for Darden Restaurants as an IT Project Manager. She has an older sister who is a speech therapist in Baltimore, MD. Being of Jamaican heritage has had such a large impact in how she carries herself and approaches situations.
Petagae fell in love with the Urban league while looking for an organization to volunteer with. The focus that the Broward Urban League had on high school juniors and seniors going into college was very moving. To be part of an organization that strives to serve underserved communities is a great honor. Petagae has had various leadership roles with the Broward county YPN and credits her experience there for allowing her to handle situations in life.
One of the biggest joy's in her life is traveling the world. Ask her recommendations for Shanghai or Costa Rica. Petagae’s favorite quote is, “ I don't believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or to make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel – Gloria Naylor
