MEET DR. HAYES
Hey Keey Kommunity,
I am Wykesha C. Hayes, a 16 year educator turned edu-preneur, strategist, consultant and program manager who recognized early on in my teaching career that the best education reform system is one that marries the classroom, the community and workforce.
I use my education and entrepreneurial background to improve leadership, resilience, and culturally responsive practices among youth, professionals that serve them and the workforce that employee them. I leverage business, education and advocacy principles to help my clients maximize their strengths by improving performance, programming and productivity…thus contributing to a profitable bottom line and experience for ALL stakeholders involved. It’s all about shifting the culture and people impacted by them!
And, as a direct result of my own professional journey, I also empower professional mom-preneurs to embrace their POWER by living purposeful, productive and profitable lives.
For the past 13 years I have managed the KEEY Brand, including Keey Group, LLC and Keey 4 Kommunities, inc. a non-profit organization dedicated to building youth, strengthening families and changing communities.
I’ve been featured on local ABC 13 and KHOU 11, Black Enterprise Magazine, and Houston Style Magazine. Over the course of my professional journey as an edu-preneur and professional speaker, I’ve worked within schools , county department agencies, the National Girls Scouts of America, hospital settings, and churches in various professional and consulting capacities.
Committed to being a lifelong learner, I hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Psychology from the University of Houston, a Master’s in Educational Management from the University of Houston-Clear Lake and a Ph.D in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M University.
Though my family plays a significant role in the core of the KEEY Brand, when I’m not working, I enjoy family time with my husband Steven and son Zaire aka “Z”. You can usually find me juggling my life in the stands at basketball games, supporting my two favorite guys or engaged in community service projects. Thankfully, my lifestyle is my BRAND.
