About Our CEO and Founder
Cinnamon Key, LCSW is a native to South Florida. She was born in Pembroke Pines in Broward County, and was raised in South Miami-Dade County. She attended grade school and college in South Florida, earning her Associates of Arts degree from Miami-Dade Community College, and both her Bachelors and Masters in Social Work degrees from Barry University. Along the path to adulthood, Cinnamon endured several life challenges.
Those experiences helped shape the budding, compassionate woman that actually existed deep inside. With those realizations taking shape, Cinnamon decided, in the early months of 2008, to dedicate herself to serving others and helping them find their light. She desired to be the match that lit the candle of competence and confidence in the life of others. She began working with teenagers that were aging out of the foster care system and transitioning into the world. This work brought her into contact with children who were familiar with deep, unresolved pains and were quickly being ushered into an adult world they were not yet equipped to maneuver. Cinnamon realized that there was work for her to do and all that she had experienced in life was part of her preparation for it. She moved from foster care work to the Miami-Dade County Public School system where she has been a School Social Worker since 2009, working with children, families, administrators, and community leaders to help children succeed in making high-quality academic and life decisions.
Because the needs are great, Cinnamon volunteers in various capacities including counseling teens showing signs of depression. Greater still is her compassion and concern for children. In 2012, her exceptional involvement with children in need has inspired her with the vision to create Jamila Ladies™, a program designed to develop positive self esteem and maturity in young ladies. Born out of her incredible engagement with teenage girls, Jamila Ladies™ is destined to help girls foster the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the many roads they will encounter in life. From this program, a series of adapted programs have been highly demanded. Thus, Jamila Wellness LLC™ was born in February 2014.
