What You Need to Know

Keonnie is spending these early years of her career seeking to building an equitable world for kids over everybody else. Having spent her college days in varied ministry and higher education positions, she has learned and loved getting her hands calloused in the work of creating high energy, engaging, learning experiences for students of all ages and backgrounds.

After graduating early with honors, she spent four years teaching as a Teach For America corps member and alum in both Baton Rouge, LA and Atlanta, GA.

Concurrently in that time, she advocated for kiddos as a Miss America local titleholder and volunteer mentor.

As of late, she is developing her acumen in policy and advocacy by serving as a fellow for a local non-profit focused on educational equity in the South. She is most excited to be walk further into her purpose by beginning her Master of Divinity at Candler in the fall of 2020.

An eight on the Enneagram, Keonnie believes strongly in the partnering of joy + justice for the child, the unseen woman and the outside.
