Check out inspiring stories from Keys below.
I got started a year ago in August actually August 16th 2019. I’ve always like to dress different and have my own style. I don’t like the “boutique looks” I like street wear mixed with a little sex Appeal and I love colors bright bold colors so I decided to create my own. I started to wear my own creations and people start asking where I got them from so I decided to spread the love. Read more>>

I’ve always been a creative and artistic person. Full of adventures and new things. When this pandemic started, I was working from home. I was just at a point in my life where I decided I did not want to work for someone else or a company, giving me all that was not seeing my worth. During that time, I decided to explore a new hobby, which became handcrafting candles & room + linen sprays. From that moment on, I knew that this was a new beginning for me. I’ve always loved candles, even as a kid. Candles bring such calm aromatherapy and some great memories to others. I got to where I am today with my mother pushing me to believe I can do anything I set my mind to and with God’s giving grace. Read more>>
Sophie Publishing House was established in March of 2019 when I was about to publish the Danish version of “When the Germans Came,” a memoir narrated by a Danish WW2 veteran who served the Danish Royal Army when Denmark was attacked on April 9, 1940, and subsequently occupied for five years. I am the writer of the book but it is Ole Bjornsen’s personal experiences we hear about, as an active duty member, civilian, and member of the Danish Resistance Movement until the Liberation came on the evening of May 4, 1945.

I’ve always been a creative child. I had a cabinet, taller than me, full of supplies and toy storage with one of those large mixed media supplies (the ones with markers, crayons, color pencils, oil pastels, dry paint palettes, etc.) I created an average amount as most kids. I would make educational, music or random “funny” videos with my older step-sister from elementary throughout middle school until I focused more on dancing. When I would make videos by myself, they were strange. I would film helping deliver kittens and puppies or me burning papers on fire, I didn’t have a clear direction so I switched to film cameras.

I own “Sheri Griffin Photography” in beautiful Islamorada, Florida Keys. I am a self-taught scenic photographer who has always appreciated the beauty and presence of nature. Growing up my parents were always taking photographs of our daily adventures. There was always a camera around! My dad even prints them and hangs them along his ceiling beams. It is a true blessing to be able to capture a moment in time and cherish it forever. Pictures have always seen a major staple to my life. My photography journey started in 2015. It began with a Go-Pro hero four and progressed from there. Read more>>
I began in the fitness industry in 2014 as a Crossfit Coach as I searched for a new career path after leaving the entertainment industry. From that point, I interned and worked as a strength and conditioning assistant as I developed into a Personal Trainer for all ages. I then became the Strength and Conditioning Coach at a local high school where I have trained a State Champion team and a continued streak of league championships with all the groups I’ve worked with since 2016.
