who is elle?
Many people ask me why did I decide to teach etiquette and I tell them ….I didn’t…. it chose me. Starting years ago, each Sunday after worship service, many young women at my church began to look to me for guidance and as a confidant to discuss things related to poise, posture and business. I had increasingly become a strong influence in the lives of others and I was pleasantly being mirrored for acceptable social behavior. In that moment, I understood that I have something of value to give back to society and a duty to help bring about positive social change in our world. Out of these encounters, the reason to start teaching etiquette became extremely clear to me. God has given me the gift to help others become greater! I answered the call and accepted the mission!

What’s In the Name ELLE?
With a Christian background, Elle studied the origin of her name, and learned that the first letter of her birth name LaKesha derives from the Hebrew root word “El” which biblically means “Of God.” To Elle, this was not a coincidence…it was her destiny, and her name Elle was born. Elle’s motivational speeches aim to El-A-Vate and motivate her audience to dream, to overcome and to be greater!
Elle empowers people to become consummate professionals by transforming ordinary everyday tasks, into elegant – everyday style.
Her mantra is “There’s Etiquette In Everything!”
