Hello All! Welcome to My Blog… My name is A’Keia Sanders, and I am a wife, mother of two boys ages 6 and 2, and a US Navy Veteran. Currently, I work as a Regional Representative for U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), and I am committed to leadership, public policy, community engagement, and ensuring people from marginalized communities are given a voice and an opportunity to discuss their concerns with our legislators. In this blog, I will describe how I transitioned from being a full-time member of the U.S. Navy to working as a Government Affairs specialist, and the difficulties and struggles that I had to overcome to be successful.
