Here at South Atlanta Moms, we are on a mission to find and highlight some amazing women, moms, mother figures, etc.…here on the Southside. We recently had the opportunity to connect with a mom who inspires other women through faith and who lets nothing…not even cancer hold her back from achieving her goals. Allow us to introduce you to this week’s Meet A Mom, Keniysha J. Watts.
How many children do you have and how old are they?
I have three children two boys and one girl their names are Keiden Watts he is 6, Serenity Watts 4, and my baby boy Zacchaeus Watts is 2.
What are some of your favorite things to do with your kids?
My favorite things to do with my kids are to go on outdoor adventures and explore together food and nature. We all love to do outdoor activities.
What inspires you and what are you passionate about?
I am inspired by empowering other women through faith and teaching women how we can all heal our minds, bodies, and spirit through faith and holistic healings. I am passionate about being a creative who takes a person’s vision and brings it to life through event design.
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
I recently had brain surgery and have been battling stage 4 breast cancer for 18months. Many people wouldn’t think I would be going through such a tough journey, but I’m in great spirits and look amazing overcoming it.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do?
I am a Luxury Event/wedding planner and designer of Serenity’s Lavish Events. I have been in business for 4 years now, I first started my business in my hometown of Pensacola, Florida, and since being in Atlanta, I have had to put things on pause due to my cancer diagnosis. But now that I’m done with all treatments, and I will be opening back up in January 2022. Besides my event business, I am also a Lifestyle influencer where I share my journey of battling breast cancer and empower women through faith and holistic healing.
How has your business changed during COVID-19?
COVID-19 has definitely put a damper on my business due to not having events for quite some time and have much contact with potential clients due to the pandemic. I had to change up things and I’m the process I collaborated with other event planners hosting virtual classes and launched my first ebook on How I Started My Creative Business with my debt-free inventory formula for event professionals.
Before we go, is there anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through motherhood?
