Meet Akilah

Connector, Speaker & Career Coach

Hi, I’m Akilah. I’ve always enjoyed stories – reading them and listening to others as they share theirs. I didn’t know that this would lead me to a career that I love and would find my purpose in. I am a Connector and Influencer – owning these words and superpowers took some time to get used to. My career has had incredible highs and humbling lows. Through these experiences, I learned how to tell my story and I share this gift with my Clients. I now embrace my Superpowers and Strengths, leading to incredible alignment in life and career.

My experience as an HR Business Partner and working in Technology, Higher Education, Healthcare and Non-Profit allows me to connect with professionals who have diverse backgrounds and talents. Having experienced periods of career transition, I learned the importance of continuous learning, personal branding & authentically connecting with others to build meaningful relationships. I launched Career Lemonade in 2019, where I partner with professionals and entrepreneurs who are looking to make a shift while increasing their confidence and supporting them in making better Career & Business decisions.

I love partnering with Clients to reflect on their stories, see their greatness, recognize their strengths and reimagine their careers – one that aligns with their values and purpose.

My life and work principles are “Be Positive. . . Be Authentic. . . Be Resourceful . . . Be BOLD and Pay it Forward!”

I look forward to hearing your story,
