Rosey, Fallon & Melissa – September 2013


Three young women from the Florida Keys making their dreams come true on their terms.

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he laid back Keys lifestyle is what first attracted Rosey Kennedy to the Florida Keys. Growing up in Port Charlotte, Florida she has always preferred a natural, simple way of life which is what she loves about the islands.

A perfect day for Rosey is a day spent out on the boat, pen and paper in hand, soaking up the sunshine. She has a natural grace and charm about her that is delightful.

Rosey is a watercolor and abstract multimedia painter who paints vibrant tropical images. This guitar is one of her most special works that she painted for a close friend.

She intends to get involved with the arts community in Key West, go to school and live on her sailboat. Hopefully soon you will be seeing some of her work around town.

[dropcap]R[/dropcap]aised in the lower Florida Keys, Fallon knows the islands literally inside and out. Want to know the best place to go bridge jumping, or the best spot on the beach for a picnic? She’s the one to ask.

Fallon has a gift for design and plays a vital role in putting both FishMonster and Island Jane Magazines together each month and helps to keep the websites running smoothly. If you call or come by the office, she is likely the one you’ll talk to.

Fallon is not only a part of our FishMonster family but she is also about to join my family as well. She is engaged to Capt. Seth Hopp and they will tie the knot next month in a ceremony at the Truman Little White House in Key West.

After the wedding, she plans to continue her studies in graphic design and get as many days out on the boat as she can!

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen you first meet this young woman you are taken back by her warm friendly Texas personality.  You’ll instantly feel like old friends. As you might imagine, she loves going out on the water, watching the sunsets and enjoying the laid back atmosphere of the Keys. Then she’ll start to talk about her work…. and everything changes. There’s a little more to Melissa than meets the eye.

Melissa Foster arrived on the scene in Key West in June of this year as an Aviation Electronic Technician stationed at the Boca Chica Naval Air Station in Key West. She spends her days working on  F/A-18 Super Hornet Jets. Melissa is the only woman in her squadron and can definitely hold her own with the boys.

She will spend the next two years in Key West and then hopes to attend college and get her degree in teaching.
