Early life and Family

Keish wanted to launch a modeling career from an early age but was ridiculed for her dream and appearance, especially her dark skin tone. However, after matriculating from high school in 1989, she attracted the attention of a modeling scout who signed her; reportedly, she didn’t follow an academic path, choosing to focus on her career as a model.
Information surrounding her professional life is scarce. She worked as a model before becoming a model agency booker and fashion model agent, which entailed finding new models, signing contracts with them, booking their gigs, and connecting them to photographers. According to the reports, she later worked as public relations manager, however, following her marriage to Justin, she opted to concentrate on raising her children, halting her career.

We’ve gone through that together, and now our parents are getting older, and we’re going through that together.’

Briefly about Justin Chambers
Born in Springfield, Ohio, Justin initially launched his career as a model after a scout approached and signed him in Paris.
This led to a number of collaborations with various prestigious brands and designers, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein and Armani. Justin kicked off his acting career in 1995, with a recurring role in the series “Another World,” followed by parts in TV series and made-for-TV movies such as “Swift Justice” (1996), “Rose Hill” (1997), and “Four Corners” (1998).

Additionally, he was cast as the main character d’Artagnan in the action-adventure film “The Musketeer,” which came out just a couple of days before the September 11 attacks, and so heavily underperformed at the box office.

In 2006, he and the other cast members garnered the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
During his lengthy stint on “Grey’s Anatomy,” he starred in several movies, including “the Zodiac” (2005), “Lakeview Terrace” (2008), and “Broken City.” In 2009 he made a guest appearance in the “Private Practice.”
