About LaKeta & her girls
I am a mother to three beautiful girls. My eldest, now 16, is a Latin scholar and social justice advocate. She and I began our babywearing journey spending most of our time in a ring sling and narrow based carrier before moving on to the woven wrap. The twins are about as opposite in personality as you can get. One is bossy and directs all the playtime activities. The other is a goofy girl who would rather a sing along and art time over directed play. I am a scientist, a Molecular Biologist specializing in Infectious Disease. My research is based on microbial biochemistry and most specifically toxins, pathogenicity, and antimicrobial resistance.
