A message from La’Keisha:

If I could have a meal with anyone it the world, it would be with my grandmother (my dad’s mom) because I was a child when she died. I never got to know her and would have loved to learn more about my culturally diverse ancestry. (I’m told she was her church’s pianist, and that my love for music and long fingers come from her.)

Outside of work, I love to cook, shop and spend time with family. Lastly, I have two beautiful children whom I adore, and I enjoy being a mom! I am passionate about being a life-long learner, and I want to empower students to be all they can be.
