Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

April 23, 2019

The Honorable Michelle Naberhaus

Work/Life Balance

As women in the workplace, we all struggle to balance work with life outside of the office. It often feels like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done and still have enough time to spend with loved ones. As a legal professional and mother of five children, Michelle Naberhaus knows this feeling all too well, and will share her experiences with these issues throughout the different phases of her career. Michelle will also discuss the moment she learned that it is okay to drop a ball here and there...as long as it is one that will bounce! 

Michelle Naberhaus is a Brevard County Court Judge, appointed by Governor Rick Scott in May 2016. She spent the first two years in a criminal division and served as the Administrative Judge for the Mental Health Court. In January 2019, Michelle was assigned by the Chief Judge to serve in the Family Division as an Acting Circuit Judge. She was also selected by her colleagues from Brevard and Seminole Counties to serve as the 18th Circuit Representative for the Conference of County Court Judges of Florida. Michelle has served on the Criminal Rules, Sentencing, Legislative, and Specialty Courts Committees for the Conference, and in the Summer of 2018, she was recognized by Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Canady for her service.

Prior to her appointment, Michelle practiced law in the areas of trust and estate litigation and complex guardianship litigation with the law firms of Gray Robinson, P.A. and Dean Mead, P.A. During that time, she was an officer of the Brevard County Bar Association and was appointed to serve on the Probate Rules Committee and the Voluntary Bar Liaison Committee of the Florida Bar. Dedicated to community involvement, Michelle served on the boards of various organizations, including The Haven for Children, weVenture f/k/a Women’s Business Center, Brevard Cultural Alliance, and the King Center for the Performing Arts. In 2014, Michelle was recognized as one of LEAD Brevard’s "4 Under 40" recipients.

Michelle has been married to Rob Naberhaus, a local estate planning attorney, for a little over 18 years, and they and their five children reside in Merritt Island.

Please join us on April 23 to hear Michelle's insights on how to balance work and life!
