hi there

It’s nice to meet you. I am so happy to be in Naples, but I have to admit when I first visited five years ago, I never imagined I’d be living and working here. It was my kids’ spring break, and we were checking out the area for fun, and a little bit of work for me. I had a meeting set with Kathy McKeon, a friend of a friend, whom I’d been helping pull together a book proposal for her memoir. Kathy and her husband, Seamus, live half the year in Marco Island, and they welcomed the five of us (my husband, Michael, my older daughter, Piper, and my boy/girl twins, Thomas and Remy) into their home with bright smiles and beautiful Irish brogues. I could have stayed and…

the go-to guy

The past five years in Naples have marked some of the biggest and best moments in Leif Johnson’s life: He launched his career as a biologist at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, he met his fiancé, Katie Ferron, and he was “astounded by the beauty of Clam Bay, again and again, while studying the mangroves in the area.” This handy outdoorsman grew up on a farm and graduated from UMass Amherst with a bachelor’s in natural resource conservation. He’s made himself indispensable to his colleagues in the Conservancy’s science department by repairing ATVs and getting involved in several ongoing projects, such as the Picayune Strand restoration project. He notes that if you look at a map of Collier County, “70 to 80 percent of it is conservation land, and it’s…

personal plane

Neapolitans may still have the want or need to fly, even though the coronavirus pandemic has devasted the commercial air travel industry. While the July Fourth weekend saw a bump in domestic and international flights from the spring, summer travel was significantly down compared to 2019. So, if you’ve got the travel bug but are not yet ready to fly commercial, what about flying private? To navigate this decision, NI caught up with Stephen Myers, vice president at Elite Jets. Myers, who also captains one of the Naples-based aviation company’s Phenom 300 planes, says he and his colleagues have seen “a lot of firsttime private travelers.” Here, he shares insight into what passengers can expect from this exclusive method of air travel.
