Meet Nikki Karis, author, inspiring speaker, animal advocate, and creative entrepreneur. Karis’ given name is Nikki Marie Kavouklis, and she resides on the West Coast of Florida with her rescue cats and dogs, who inspire her as she creates and writes.
Prior to launching her inspiring projects, including her book series and merchandise site, she was a practicing personal injury attorney for twenty-eight years, having her own law firm with six locations at the height of her practice. During the pandemic of 2020, however, Karis finally decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her lifelong dream of inspiring others via her empowering books and uplifting merchandise.
During the past couple of years, Karis made preparations to launch several sites including: T1 Rise, a super-brand of eight social activism risings, and Tail Life, a merchandise site uniting people and their pets around the world. These projects, along with many others, will begin launching late 2023 and beyond.
For pleasure, Karis enjoys reading, traveling, rescuing animals, collecting art, and decorating her circa 1925 home. She also loves exploring the world and hopes to grow Finding Zeni, Inc., the holding company for her inspiring projects, into a successful, caring, and compassionate company with a mission to uplift and empower others. Her future plans include building a home and an animal rescue center on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where she frequently retreats to write.
