About Me

/Who Am I

A freelance writer, sales consultant and branding manager, Lakeia Brown wears many hats. It just depends on which one looks better with heels. Lakeia believes in the power of storytelling, whether she’s sharing with a reader or a consumer. “Just make sure the story is compelling and based in human connectiveness,” she says. Over the past 10 + years, Lakeia has worked in advertising, providing consumer insights at television networks like Comedy Central, Nick @ Nite, TV Land, BET and Cartoon Network/Adult Swim.  As a writer, she has penned countless articles for publications and websites including, O, The Oprah Magazine, Complex, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Root, and Essence (she interviewed the incomparable Maya Angelou for the latter!).

A Morgan State University alumni, Lakeia was tapped in 2017 to join Mikey Likes It Ice Cream, the pop-cultured inspired ice cream shop with locations in New York’s Lower East Side and Harlem. As V.P. of Sales and Business Development, she creates custom activations for corporate clients. Mikey Likes It has worked with brands like Maybelline, Starz, Nike, Viacom, Dusse, W Hotels and Kate Spade.
