Kamekio Lewis - Author of "Looking 4 all the Wrong Places" and Founder of Share Life 

Serving others with Passion, Perseverance & Poise

Surviving a 2 year abusive relationship fueled her passion to help other women in similar situations and motivated her to write her 1st book, "Looking for Love....In All the Wrong Places. The community support was overwhelming and she used the book as the basis to continue to bring awareness to domestic violence and wrote and produced her first Hit Stage in 2012 to a sold out crowd in Memphis, TN. Her mission is to continue to use print, publications, and plays to help bring awareness to the seriousness of domestic violence.
She found love in the right place and has been married to the love of her life, Dennis for 14 years. They have 3 handsome boys, Kaveyon, Kemareyon, & Dakaree! 

Kamekio has a passion to share the love of God through ministry and fellowship with women and children. In 2009, she completed Ministry Training International has continuously worked in ministry throughout her military career in Alaska, Kansas, and now in Tennessee.
As a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, she has worked in the rehabilitation field for 10 years, helping individuals with disabilities transition.  Her passion to help others succeed is demonstrated through her countless volunteer hours and outreach ministries. She is the Executive Director of A New Day Rehabilitation & Counseling Services, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate transitional barriers and coordinate services for women and children.
In efforts to provide housing for these families in need, A New Day has collaborated with The Share Life Community Housing Initiative, to provide a comfortable, caring, and conducive environment where women and children receive hope and healing to help get their lives back on track.
