Essentially Key Biscayne: Cristina Figueredo Zizold
Key Biscayner Cristina Figueredo Zizold chose a career in art instead of medicine, but eventually combined all her interests and found a creative way to help heal kids. Zizold is the founder of Art Heart, which runs art classes and events at Holtz Children’s Hospital. Specializing in holiday related projects, the organization brings art supplies – and often, local artists – to young patients and supervises the creative processes during their often extended hospital stays.

Five Questions for Theodora Long
Theodora H. Long is executive director of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center, an organization dedicated to conservation and situated in Crandon Park along the coastal beaches it seeks to preserve. With an ocean full of sea life to explore in its backyard and a facility that includes exhibit space, a demonstration lab and massive tanks filled with local seahorses and eels, the center has been providing programming to the community since 1969. We sat down with Long to find out about our island’s treasures – including information about best ice cream treat in town.

Whiskey Joe’s – Key Biscayne Foodie Find
With fresh fare on the table and a dramatic view out back, this casual island eatery elevates relaxed, outdoor dining.
If Key Biscayne were missing a link between its own, elegant lifestyle and that of the casual, kick-back flavor of the Florida Keys to its south, the cultures have been connected by Whiskey Joe’s. Operated by Rusty Pelican owners and located in the Rickenbacker Marina, the surrounding waterfront combined with the sophisticated Brickell Avenue skyline becomes a breathtaking backdrop.
