About Me and My Inspiring Projects

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Nikki Karis. My given name is Nikki Marie Kavouklis, and I reside on the West Coast of Florida with my forty-plus rescue animals who inspire me as I create and write.

Prior to launching my Tone Rising site which is a super-brand of eight risings, I was a practicing personal injury attorney for twenty-eight years. During the pandemic of 2020, I finally decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her lifelong dreams by launching Tone Rising and its associated merchandise brands.

For pleasure, I enjoy reading, traveling, rescuing animals, collecting art, and decorating my circa 1925 home. I also love exploring the world, and hope to grow Tone Rising into a successful, caring, and compassionate company with a mission to empower others. My future plans include building a home and an animal rescue center on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where, before the pandemic, I would frequently retreat to write.

Stay tuned for more information, as I’m set to release book one of my GodDogs series middle of November of 2020. Also, check “The GodDogger” shop for my other books, Becoming Grace – 800 Inspiring Messages and Zenilution, as well as my inspiring GodDogger products. Love and blessings, Nikki Karis
