Mekeisha Steele is an educator, mother of 3 adult-ish children, and wife over over 20 years to Greg Steele. She's a graduate of Baylor University and Concordia University with degrees in Education from both.
After receiving her Masters degree and spending over 15 years in public education, Mekeisha made the decision to work at the school that her children attended, Turning Point Christian Academy, to help better manage their education. She has served as their Director of Education since 2012.
Mekeisha is also a long-time sports mom. Years of taking her boys back and forth to games, tournaments and practices taught her a thing or two about how the industry works. She's now the organizer for the TACA Storm Basketball team, a home school basketball team that serves Southern Dallas County and beyond.
Two decades of growing in life and love have taught Mekeisha more than a few lessons in how to adjust when life throws at you the unexpected and unanticipated. She's grateful to share her victories and her stories with working women, busy moms and high school students.
