We had the good fortune of connecting with LaCriscia Fowlkes and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi LaCriscia, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I was fortunate to grow up in a rural town in Virginia. The joy of experiencing four seasons plays into how I think of planning activities of my business. I believe growing up around flower gardens, as well as fruit trees and bushes plays into my interest in herbalism now. I love going to the beach, but walking through fresh-cut grass is my grounding sweet spot.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’ve built a company where the mission and purpose are in the name Rooted In Love and Truth. Every project we work on, every couple we guide and marry, every day the goal is to do it in Love and in Truth.
We are a multifaceted company because as the owner I have trained and worked to learn everything I can that interests me. So we have three categories of work:
In each category love and truth leads the discussions and implementation.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
On a long weekend in Miami we will go to a beach (probably not South Beach that’s for tourists, lol), we’ll eat at Morgans, and visit The Historic Hampton House and the Historic Black Police Precinct Courthouse and Museum to start. I would go places we could enjoy the view like Deering Estate and Coral Castle.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shout out to the late Alvin & Bernice C. Fowlkes, Sr. – my parents for creating a foundation of love and spirituality in my life. LaTiscia, Angie, Alvin, and Brenda for their support as siblings. My aunts, uncles, and cousins for their support over the years. To my Honey Shine Family that showed me the way in Miami. Andrea, Mirta, Norma Jean, Amy, and Tracy, and so many more of you thank you for being my friend and mentor over the years. To Sheri Kaplan, Michelle Alva, and Shanila Sattar for their mentorship and guidance in the healing arts. To my lifelong “framily” Cerone, Carmen, Millette, Donna, Nicola, and Nicole, Thank You! Lastly, my Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project (YADAPP) Family – I would not be the leader I am today without this foundation.
There are too many people to name, if our paths have crossed and you’ve left footprints on my heart (or vice versa) I thank you for helping me to become who I am.
