LaKeisha was born and raised in Dooly County. She graduated from Middle Ga Technical College with an AAS Degree in Business Administration. She took a lot of time as an Earth Team Volunteer for the National Resources of Conservation Service (NRCS) in 2015 until 2017. She learned different aspects of NRCS, importantly helping people help the land. She has less experience on the farm but more in conserving natural resources. Surprisingly, she was offered a job with the Georgia Association of Conservation District (GACD) as a District Program Assistant (DPA) that will motivate her to continue helping the people and getting paid to do it. She says out of all the jobs she's ever had, the greatest opportunity in every position is "Helping people become a better person". And this job is by far her greatest accomplishment.
