iCare Community Magazine - Celebrating 8 Years of Serving Our Community
Updated: Jan 4
iCare Community Magazine is the brainchild of its Editor in Chief Angel Chavez. It was created 8 years ago with our community in mind. Angel had a vision of putting a spotlight on the Treasue Coast’s local professionals with a goal of getting to know them on a more personal level. He envisioned having an informative and interesting magazine that would allow businesses in the area to highlight themselves and bring to the people of the Treasure Coast a strong sense of community and inspire people to support their local businesses.
Starting back in 2012 with our St. Lucie County issue, iCare Community Magazine has now grown to five zones, currently covering St. Lucie County, Martin County, Tradition, Palm City and Okeechobee, with plans to expand even further in the future.
In the beginning it was just Angel and his graphic designer John Gorman. With the vision of both Angel and John put to paper, the magazine was becoming a success before the first issue ever went to press. Roughly a year later iCare Community Magazine expanded into Martin County and again it was well received. From that point iCare expanded into Tradition, Palm City and Okeechobee respectively.
Over the past 8 years iCare Community Magazine has established a team of elite marketing professionals who share a passion for the magazine that the community has come to love. Pick up your copy of iCare Community Magazine today!

LEIGH HITZ - ADVERTISING CONSULTANT
I enjoy working for iCare Community Magazine and helping to showcase the businesses in our communities to our readers. I had been an English teacher for 10 years, six in Pennsylvania, where I’m from and where my family lives, and then four years in Brazil where I delighted in the tropical weather and scenery.
After returning to Pennsylvania, I worked in advertising for several years there and realized I loved the industry, but I grew tired of the cold weather in Pennsylvania, so I moved here in 2007 to bask in the warmth of the Florida sun.
I like working in partnership with our businesses here to find marketing solutions that give them more exposure and help them grow, and I enjoy nurturing relationships within the community. For help with your business, call me at 561-308-6061 or email me at Leigh.iCareCommunity@gmail.com.
