D'Asign Source receives top honors

D'Asign Source of Marathon was named "Best Of Houzz" for customer satisfaction by Houzz, the leading online platform for home remodeling and design.

The 55-year-old, family-owned D'Asign Source was chosen by the more than 25 million unique monthly users who comprise the Houzz community.

The Best Of Houzz award is given in two categories: design and customer satisfaction.

"D'Asign Source is delighted to be selected as a 'Best of Houzz,'" said President Franco D'Ascanio.

"The visual impact we can give to our customers via the Houzz website is outstanding."

Liza Hausman, vice president of industry marketing for Houzz, said, "We're delighted to recognize D'Asign Source among our 'best of' professionals as judged by our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts who are actively remodeling and decorating their homes."

First State Bank promotes Jones

First State Bank of the Florida Keys congratulates Deanna Jones on her promotion to customer service specialist.

Jones was hired as a teller in 2010 at the boulevard branch, a position she held until 2012, when she transferred to online banking representative.

She was nominated employee of the quarter in 2014 by her fellow employees and manager.

"Deanna is an inspiration to other employees for her continued commitment to the Bank and our customers," said Brian Stadler, First State online banking officer/call center manager.

"Her promotion to customer service specialist is a well-deserved result of this dedication."

A Key West native, Jones attended Key West High School and is working toward her associate's degree through Florida Keys Community College.

Body Concierge arrives in Keys

This month, the Body Concierge brings My Body Concierge Club to Key West.

A group health coaching program, My Body Concierge Club hosts meetings at approved businesses around town, bringing clients face-to-face with alternative foods, exercise and local natural health practitioners. By spending time in places that perpetuate health, members are not only introduced to a wholesome lifestyle, but also familiarized with it.

"The Body Concierge is founded on the belief that knowledge is power," said founder Eric Elloie. "We find that many times, clients just haven't been introduced to a healthy lifestyle that is also sustainable. This new group program will do just that."

The six-month curriculum kicks off with a one-on-one consultation, identifying individual goals for health and wellness.

During one meeting, members may dine at a vegan café while discussing alternative types of dieting or explore the therapeutic benefits of massage and acupuncture in a local spa.

"The options are endless and I am super-excited," said Erica Kennell, the first to sign up for this group in January.

Meetings will be held at 5:45 p.m. on the first, third and (if applicable) fifth Monday of each month starting Monday.
