Xuchitl N. Coso

Xuchitl and her husband Nick have become proud “Lakelanders” since moving here in 2007. Xuchitl came to Lakeland as the Director of Career Development for Florida Southern College. She quickly became involved in the community by joining the Lakeland Rotary Club, being a member of Leadership Lakeland Class 27 and Leadership Polk Class 6. She has served on the Board of Directors of her Rotary club twice and currently chaired the Spring Obsession event which is a Lakeland favorite. Xuchitl became Executive Director of PACE Center for Girls and moved that organization forward. She has now retired but is still a very involved member in her community being a class representative on the Board of the Leadership Lakeland Alumni Association.

Xuchitl has two grown children who live in Miami and Iowa City. She is a big sports fan and enjoys playing tennis, swimming, spending time with family and traveling. She is very excited to continue to help Lakeland grow as a member of the Lakeland Vision Board.
