Whether it's landing a feature in The New York Times, shooting a YouTube short, writing a blog series, or publishing a novel, Lakeshia Poole believes in creating narratives that spark change and connect people. She has spent more than a decade helping organizations, companies and individuals tell their best stories.
Lakeshia has provided traditional and social media relations and program development to a variety of clients including Wells Fargo, Nestle's Lean Cuisine, Walmart, Morehouse School of Medicine, National Peanut Board, Habitat for Humanity, CDC and Moe's Southwest Grill. She has blended digital media relations with traditional outreach, generating coverage across multiple key markets and nationally in outlets like Parenting, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, TheGrio.com, HuffingtonPost.com, The New York Times, Black Enterprise, Self and TODAY Show.
She previously served as a Senior Manager at public relations firm Golin. In addition, she worked as Assistant Director of Partnership Marketing for Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s national technology initiatives with Microsoft, Comcast, Sprint, the Todd Wagner Foundation and Best Buy. She has also led public relations programs and training efforts on behalf of the national early childhood education franchise group, Primrose Schools.
When she's not crafting content for clients, she's dreaming up new storylines for her next fiction book, covering positive local news with her nephew Ty at PositivelyWaCo.com, or helping people fight fear with power, love and a sound mind. Lakeshia enjoys spending time with her family and rooting for The University of Georgia Bulldogs.
