Mike and Jeri Tyson's Florida roots run deep. Mike was raised in Florida, and Jeri is a native—born and raised. They both attended college at the University of South Florida in Tampa, which is where they met and fell in love. Mike and Jeri raised their 2 kids in the Tampa/St. Pete area and after being relocated to Arkansas, Georgia and Texas for job opportunities, decided to make the Punta Gorda area their home upon Mike’s retirement.
Mike spent 30+ years working in finance for a nation-wide, leading healthcare provider, and Jeri has over 30 years of experience as an interior designer and is an Allied member of ASID. The couple decided to come out of retirement and open Fresh Interiors so that they could cater to the ever-expanding population of Punta Gorda and Southwest Florida. Their desire is for Fresh Interiors to be your first choice in meeting your home décor and design needs.
Jeri’s design has taken her into both residential and commercial design; her previous firm J. Leigh Designs was responsible for the original interior design of Port Charlotte’s South Port Square, as well as St. Pete’s historic Princess Martha hotel’s conversion to a Senior Living Community. Locally, Jeri opened and developed the interior design department for Punta Gorda’s Sandstar Homes, where she served as the in-house interior designer for Interiors by SandStar.
Jeri has a track record unlike many in the interior design business, with expertise in both commercial and residential interior design. She is responsible for the creation and execution of countless stunning interior designs on behalf of many loyal clients. Headed by Jeri, the design studio of Fresh Interiors is THE choice for clients who expect and demand the best.
