Speaker Spotlight: Aleisha McDaniel

by admin on April 15, 2013

Northern Utah is excited to introduce you to our first Speaker Spotlight: Aleisha McDaniel of “She Calls Me Mama Leisha”.

Aleisha and I have known “of” each other, but officially met at auditions, where we couldn’t stop talking. I liken it to soul mates. Now, I am afraid she will never get rid of me.

Aleisha is a lover of cookies, wearer of lipstick, and shopper of shoes!  She is an avid reader, Diet Coke drinker, terrible singer, and a cheeseburger connoisseur.  She is an advocate of motherhood and a believer in strengthening and supporting women.  She is a mother of two (almost three), a wife, a blogger and a writer.

Aleisha has always loved to write.  She has fond memories of writing and illustrating children’s books as an eight-year-old, and then trying to sell them to her neighbors for a quarter!  Her passion for writing led her to pursue an English degree from Utah State University.  She graduated with an emphasis in Literary Studies.   Her beloved blog, “She Calls Me Mama Leisha”, began as a creative outlet and a way for her to document her life as a busy mother.  She writes about the humorous and quirky moments in the every day that add a touch of sparkle and sunshine to life.  Recently her short story, “Mom Song”, won first place in a national literature competition, sponsored by American Mothers, Inc.  She has written for the Time out for Women website, the national American Mothers blog, various local businesses, and was voted one of Circle Of Mom’s, “Top 25 Moms with Style.”  She feels blessed to be, “Mama Leisha,” and recognizes it as her greatest accomplishment.

You can laugh, and learn, and cry along with her at www.callsmemamaleisha.com.
