I founded she PR at the intersection of my advocacy efforts, media expertise, and a new life outside of the military. As a longtime
mentor to helping women and moms discover how to convert their interests and skills into a profitable business, I realized that I should focus specifically on the empowerment and the rising influence of women.
As women, we’re at an unprecedented moment right now. Current world events prove that women are more emboldened than ever to own, lead, and take action. Whether you’re building a brand that reflects and support women’s everyday realities; or running a political campaign and seek to better connect with women voters, help is here. My superpower is harnessing those distinctly feminine brand traits and using them to build strategy and messaging to deliver across traditional media that not only resonates with women but drives long-term wonderment, financial value, or results at the ballot box.
I'm Lakesha, but my friends call me Kesha. I'm mom to Kailey (15), Kirby (6), and Keegan (4). Raising good humans is my most important job. We are a veteran family and currently nestled in the Tampa Bay suburbs.
I'm a proud HBCU graduate and earned a B.A. in journalism with a minor in public relations from NC A&T SU. I also hold an A.A.S. in retail marketing from Parsons, The New School (aka the Harvard of fashion). I've been featured by the Today Show, NBC News, CBS This Morning, Fox & Friends, Bustle, Attn:, Black Enterprise, EBONY, Military Families Magazine, Military Spouse, Military.com, and more.
I'm an Enneagram 5w6, which means I'm always thinking of solutions. I'm a walking fact-checker with an extreme thirst for knowledge and meaningful data. I seek truth, loyalty, and independence. Genuine relationship building is my jam.
Love Lakesha! She is an inspiration to every woman! She always responds with thoughtful answers to
help me grow
my business. Her book is full of great ideas for starting your own business all wrapped up under one umbrella. I love following her on Facebook and Instagram for that daily inspiration!
