The OCBA and the Central Florida Association for Women Lawyers (CFAWL) invite you to attend an open conversation between Harbor House of Central Florida CEO, Michelle Sperzel, and author of Unintentional Hero: From Domestic Violence Victim to Survivor to Advocate Rania Arwani, Esq.
With nearly 20 years in leadership and nonprofit experience, Michelle Sperzel currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Harbor House of Central Florida. During the past two years, she’s focused on improving processes for survivors; started conversations within our community around the epidemic; opened the new temporary housing facility on the Harbor House campus; and implemented youth programs to stem the tide of violence. Prior to Harbor House, Sperzel led several nonprofit organizations through administrative and direct service program development. She came to Harbor House by way of Girls in the Game in Chicago, IL, which empowers all girls to be gamechangers; but her experience with domestic violence within Florida came when she led Shelter House in Ft. Walton Beach.
Rania Arwani, Esq.

Rania acted as a Research Assistant at Barry University School of Law and a Certified Legal Intern for the Children and Families Clinic.
