She actively volunteers in her church, community, and within her children’s schools and activities.
As a New Orleans native, LaShana’s daily life was surrounded by the beauty of design in fashion, architecture, landscaping, music, food from the melding of French, Spanish, Caribbean, and Italian cultures throughout the city. It continues to impact her design thinking. LaShana loves travel, music, reading, and cooking and eating good food.
LaShana received her B.A. from Xavier University where she majored in Management Science, MBA from Meredith College, and is currently pursuing her Doctorate in the College of Design at North Carolina State University where she is researching the access of independent artisans to the global markets.
