Councilwoman Digna Cabral
Who is Digna Cabral?
Through her history of service, Digna has learned that proper leadership in government is imperative for the well-being of the constituents. She believes that leaders should carry with them the reasons why many residents choose the city of Doral to raise their families while supporting and representing initiatives that will benefit the residents of our beautiful city.

Throughout her career she has been able to collaborate with various national and international universities. She has served as a Board member and former Chair for The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine of the United State (AIUM). The City of Doral is ingrained in Digna and her family. It is the community in which her youngest daughter was born and her two oldest children received their education. She remains active in her parish, serving as a certified Catechist of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, member of the Altar Servers minister, and Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish. This dedication to others can be traced back to Digna’s early life in her homeland of the Dominican Republic. Digna’s believes that her principles of honesty and humility are stronger than any business contract. These values were instilled in Digna by her parents and led to a desire to advocate for our Doral community.

As of March of 2019 her lobbying efforts for the Florida stroke registry for monitoring and improving the quality of patients hospital care resulted in the largest State issued allocation in the history of the registry.
As a Miami-Dade resident, Digna is all too familiar with the devastation caused by hurricanes. She has spearheaded initiatives to serve the individuals affected by the destruction of Hurricane Irma. During these difficult times she personally assisted residents of our city and actively participated in the cleaning process of not only her community but other Doral neighborhoods as well. With the support of the residents of our city, she participated in several initiatives that collected water, nonperishable food, clothing, and other items and distributed them to displaced individuals and their families affected by Hurricane Maria (including those in Puerto Rico).
