Owner & Founder, Oori Bake Shop
A flair for business runs in Helen’s blood. She grew up watching her parents work in their restaurant so it is only fitting that she started her own establishment as well. After the pandemic hit, like many people around the world, Helen took to baking as a labor of love. However, unlike new bread baking fanatics, she used her passion to open up Oori Bake Shop––Oori which meaning “us” or “our” in Korean. Although it may seem like she wears many hats (bartender, baker, businesswoman), there is a lot to learn about the way she pursues her passions and continues to infuse joy in all aspects of her life.

Brand Manager, Earth and Sugar, Owner & Founder, Mikki’s Table
As the eldest of eleven children and native of The Bahamas, Mikiayla was born on the island of Grand Bahama. Her childhood and adulthood offer no shortage of excitement or busyness. Since childhood, she has wrestled with a red blood cell disease, Sickle Cell, that often leaves her in excruciating pain leading to hospitalizations. Earning degrees in culinary arts and event planning, she found that constant exposure to high temperatures of the kitchen as a chef took a harsh toll on her body. Because of this, she pivoted to event planning for ten years. Following her time as an event planner, Mikki moved into marketing and brand management with Earth and Sugar Confectionary Studio and founded Mikki’s Table, a space where Mikki shares her love for culinary arts.
Owner, Halle Alessia Photography
Meet Halle, South Florida based photographer and creative. Halle Alessia Photography was born to capture the life we live through the most amazing souls! Her love of photography began at a young age. Bringing a vision to life is one of the most exciting feelings and Halle knew photography was going to be that medium for her as soon as she picked up a camera at a young age. She continued her photography journey throughout college where she found herself interning for a local photography business, a husband and wife duo who quickly became mentors and taught her the ins and outs of photography.
