Green Turtle Inn Islamorada: Terry handles all fincials and concels on myriad other initiatives including Offsite Catering and FL Keys Weddings.

Terry Albury, Director of Operations

 

Terry has been an essential element in both Kaiyo Grill and Green Turtle Inn since their inception. She was born in Lakewood, Ohio to a family of good, solid "old-fashioned" values; her parents were married for sixty years! She has four brothers and a sister so she learned how to manage men early in life and by being a huge Cleveland sports fan she has learned how to manage catastrophe just as well - both of which make her an ideal restaurateur.

 

Terry graduated from Dyke Business College (in a year to remain unnamed) with a B.A. in accounting. She moved to the FL Keys in 1984. Proud and very active mother of Emily and John.

 

Terry tackles more duties and tasks between both restaurants than there is room to mention but her most notable includes her primary role as Director of Operations for both restaurant and every Tuesday hosting the Girls Night Out live radio broadcasts on . Always willing to do whatever it takes Terry is an invaluable part of the success of both restaurants -and she has a great smile! Terry can regale you with tales of local Keys legend and lore. Stop in to The Turtle any Tuesday for Girl's Night Out and share a glass of Chardonnay with the most colorful number cruncher ever!

Chris Visger,

Chef de Cuisine/Catering


The Turtle’s Chef de Cuisine Chef Chris Visger was born in Alabama and raised in Richmond Virginia.  Growing up he enjoyed competitive soccer and swimming. He began cooking at home with his mom at an early age. The hobby quickly led way to a profession and Chris worked in restaurants throughout high school. He attended Virginia Tech where he completed a degree in history and made a concentrated study in hospitality. 


 Following graduation Chris headed west to the Scottsdale Culinary Institute in Arizona. Chris returned to Richmond and earned the position of Sous Chef at Lemaire, the award winning restaurant at The Jefferson Hotel. It was there in Richmond he met Daphne and fell in love. Together they moved to the Florida Keys and were married in 2011. The couple welcomed their son Teddy in 2012 and are proud to be a part of their new Florida Keys island community.


In the restaurant he explores creative presentations featuring local seafood and seasonal produce which can be experienced first hand by diners through his inviting  nightly specials and signature menu features. When not creating culinary magic, Chris enjoys fishing and spending time with family, friends, and his dog.
