Bio

My name is LaKeisha Phillips Crocker.  I am originally from Greenhill, which is located in northwest Alabama.  I have been married to Matt Crocker for 12 years.  We have a nine year old son and a 1 year old Chorkie named Hamilton.

My family and I attend First United Methodist Church Sylacauga, where I serve as the Children's Choir director and my husband plays bass and sings for the praise band.  We are very active with our local theatre, Sylacauga Community Playhouse.  I am also a board member of Sylacauga Arts Council and Sylacauga Young Professionals.
