Meet Keya

Professional Coach, Consultant & Inspirational Speaker


I desire to work with you if you are ready to change your life and do the work necessary. No excuses. You will want to work with me if you are ready for truth, support and my optimistic and encouraging spirit. I provide perspective. I am reflective and will ask intentional questions. I will not waste your time or money. You should also know that I am patient and have great listening skills. I lean into my values of integrity, excellence, accountability, equity and collaboration, when working and that is consistent in any of the capacities that I fill.

So here's the part you have been waiting for, you need me  to tell you I am qualified. I am clinically trained to provide therapeutic services for those seeking mental health counseling, but I have chosen a career in coaching, Educationally, I have attained a BA of Psychology from Ashford University, a MA of Human Services Counseling and a MA of Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University.  To strengthen my work with couples I am also  a  Certified Facilitator for Prepare and Enrich


While coaching is my passion l also serve as the Program Director for a nonprofit and serve in leadership, training, public speaking, community outreach, grant writing and a diverse background of other skills and abilities. While volunteering within my local community I have had the privilege of serving on nonprofit boards and being a featured panelist on several virtual events regarding racism and social bias as well as trauma in schools. Opportunities have been provided where I have been featured on local news stations and interviewed for newspaper articles to provide insight into students and mental health, education as well as race relations.

Allow me to walk with you during this time and encourage you to reach your goals of having a fruitful, peaceful, joyous and abundant life.
