"Lakeya is an experienced and highly skilled executive who is a great coach/consultant for other high-achieving women who are looking to up-level their business, leadership, career, etc. She's also an in-demand trainer, facilitator, speaker and would be great for any business or organization to hire across a range of topics!"
Jennifer Henius, LCSW, RYT Healthcare Executive
"Never have I been so impacted by a virtual training as I’ve been with the Dare to Lead workshop facilitated by Dr. Lakeya. She is an authentic female leader willing to rumble with her own vulnerabilities with the class while professionally moving us through the materials. A+++ and I highly recommend this to anyone trying to become a better manager and leader in all aspect of their lives."
Charnell Smith, LCSW-C, BCD
“Participating in Dare to lead has radically changed how I show up in spaces on a daily basis. It has encouraged me to show up authentically, and pursue professional goals that I would have shrunken away from normally. Lakeya’s approach to this workshop brings a level of comfort and trust that makes the first step to being vulnerable and authentic easy. This is an investment that I can easily say, I’m happy I made.”
“I will forever think fondly of Lakeya Cherry after attending the Dare to Lead for Black Women cohort where she was our facilitator. The sessions were well planned and Lakeya, while keeping our class of 14 on track, allowed everyone time to share their thoughts and hearts. I believe I found some parts of me that I had lost and left our last session with clarity, a sense of worth, and a “leadership peace” I had not known in some time."

"Dr. Cherry’s keynote was powerful. She spoke at the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics inaugural Leadership Summit. The evaluations of the presentation were exceptional.. Dr. Cherry’s mix of Dare to Lead materials with her experiences drew us in with a member typing “I love this!” while another sharing that she felt exhilarated and motivated.“
Gigi Tsontos, LCSW, MPA Executive Director of California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
"Our Board was extremely impressed with Dr. Cherry’s leadership and facilitation of our 2020 Annual Retreat. I offer a strong recommendation of Dr. Cherry’s skills, abilities, and talents to any organization who is looking for facilitation, consultation, and/or leadership development.“
