    • Reduces waste,
    • Utilizes natural resources and recyclables, and
    • Magnifies the beauty of clients’ events by using authentic elements of nature’s beauty.

    • Speaking on panels, at conferences and to community groups,
    • Educating communities on their rights and issues and organizations on how to engage communities of color, and
    • Developing resources for impacted communities and organizers working with impacted communities that are diverse and appropriate in language, images, and relative facts.

Who is Shakeila?

Shakeila Stuckey James, or Mrs. Know-It-All, is a multi-faceted, multi-skilled Southern Belle with a passion for many things. Through her process of becoming a life coach, she learned that she was a “rainbow person”, a person who has the capability to be equally passionate and skilled at many things. For the majority of her life, Shakeila looked at this as a pitfall because she was always “picking up a new project”. However, as she unpacked her abilities in search for her niche, God helped Shakeila realize this was a blessing and not a curse. So now she embraces being a Jane of all trades...and is proud of being a “know-it-all”!

Shakeila has degrees in speech, psychology and counseling. She has also had training for lifestyle coaching, business coaching, parent coaching, Christian counseling, event planning, and climate/environmental advocacy. Through, she can provide multi-faceted services to a diverse set of clients using various skill sets to meet their needs.

What is Sustainable?

Sus•tain•a•ble (/səˈstānəb(ə)l/): the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.

Sustainability is most often defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. It has three main pillars: economic, environmental, and social.
