    Keisha Faulkner

    Hi There!

    My name is Keisha Faulkner, orginally from New Jersey and currently based out of Philadelphia. By trade I have been a medical device sales consultant for two top corporate companies for over 6 years. I absolutely love what I do during my 9-5 because it involves helping chronic pain and oncology patients have a better quality of life. Working for a large corporate company is incredibly rewarding and satisfying, but as a career-driven woman, I eventually learned the importantance of investing in my health and wellness. After working in a demanding career for years after graduating college, I realized the effect that stress can have on your life, including burn-out and emotionally instability. I realized how much stress-induced diseases have plagued my family resulting in chronic illnesses such as, depression, hypertension, kidney disease and heart failure. In my mid-20s, I took a stand against what chronic illness can do to women of color and refused to allow stress to become the culprit of my own health and wellness deterioration. With that, Mind Body Melanin (originally named The Holistic Lioness & Co.) became my 5-9 social enterprise serving women in my community.

    I work tirelessly, after my day job, to build an online community for women of color filled with health and wellness information, events, programs, and key stakeholders. I am a firm believer and advocate for providing health and wellness resources for under-served communities. I utilize my background in sales to create strategic business partnerships with companies that align with our goals and mission! I look forward to the future and growth of Mind Body Melanin. Creating a space for women of color to live healthier and happier.
