Timbergrove resident Kelley Davidson.

Timbergrove resident Kelley Davidson is a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and nutritionist who has launched RESTART — a five-week functional nutrition program that is part educational, part sugar detox and part support group.

Sessions are held at Body Rock Pilates, 3502 Oak Forest Dr.

Davidson creates fitness and nutrition plans tailored to individual needs. She says each human is an individual with unique dietary and movement needs, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

“My clients are getting energy back, better rest and drastically improved health,” Davidson said. “Plus, clothes fitting better is always a bonus of functional nutrition.”

Registration for RESTART is $250 per participant. For more information and to register, call or text 281-413-9627 or email

Local clothing designer hosts trunk show

Inwood Forest’s Jill Focke has been on the road a lot over the last four years as a wardrobe supervisor on tours with classic rock band Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks. When she found herself with an unexpected hiatus from touring due to COVID-19, Focke pivoted a bit. 

Focke has had a clothing label, J Ellen Designs, for years but recently is focusing more on her design work. Oak Forest’s Marcy Basile recently created a new website for Focke,, where customers can order her pieces.

She planned to host a trunk show at her home on Thursday and is also available for private showings.

“The entire second floor of the new house is my workroom, complete with fitting area, and the racks are always up and ready to view,” she said. “Come by and see all the great new styles that I’ve created.”
