La Keisha Jackson is currently a member of the City-County Council of Indianapolis-Marion County, District 14. She is the younger of two children and a Georgia native. La Keisha moved to the great City of Indianapolis in 1984 and has resided in Warren Township for over 15 years. Her faith and religious beliefs have a profound effect on her life. La Keisha Jackson has been a business professional for over 20 years and working in the community and social services field for the past 15 years. My passion is helping disadvantaged and at-risk youth and families develop personal, professional and educational skills. Although, my official title, at a local not-for profit community center, is Executive Director, children call me, “Ms. Keisha.” I decided to become a youth mentor so that I could inspire children to learn, grow and be empowered to become self-sufficient. I desire to foster youth in my love of knowledge, professionalism and wisdom just as my parents, teachers and mentors have inspired me.     
La Keisha has served on many boards, neighborhood & community groups, committees, planning events, conference committee host and conference facilitator for HUD related national conferences. La Keisha is also the recipient of two Mayor’s Community Service Awards (2008 & 2012). 
 
La Keisha Jackson is an alumni of Indiana University, Bloomington, and has obtained several college degrees.  In 2007, she obtained her MBA with a specialization in Health Care Management from Indiana Wesleyan University and graduated Magna Cum Laude.  La Keisha Jackson has dedicated her life to helping disadvantaged and at-risk youth and families.  La Keisha has touched the lives of over 100,000 residents by helping them achieve employment, personal, financial, spiritual and educational goals in some capacity.
 
"My life-long passion is being a voice for the community and connecting resources to help the underserved and disadvantaged who cannot help themselves."
