With over ten years of facilitating, mentoring, and public speaking experience it is no surprise that Cheresa “Lady Reese” Purnell would further her passion through social media. She first began her writing/blogging career as Lady Reese Speaks in July 2010. This blog became her vehicle to address issues on l.i.f.e. (love. inspiration. faith. experiences) from her unique perspective. Since it’s inception, her blog has received rave reviews; the latest being a post that went viral and garnered over 26k Likes.
As her love for social media continued to grow, she found a way to turn a casual indulgence into a thriving business that would assist others who didn’t have the same passion but needed the benefits. In January 2011, she signed her first contract as the Social Media Coordinator for Demoiselle 2 Femme, NFP. and now currently serves as their Media Communications Specialist. One year later, she officially launched Purnell Enterprises, a small business using social media to facilitate social change in the community!
