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 Recording Academy (Grammy’s), The Atlanta
Journal Constitution, The Root, and Essence (she interviewed the
incomparable Maya Angelou for the latter!).
A Morgan State University alumni, Lakeia is V.P. of Sales and Business
Development at Mikey Likes It Ice Cream, the pop-culture inspired ice
cream shop with locations in New York’s Lower East Side and Harlem.
She is also the host of the popular podcast, Decoded With Elle Bee.
