Dr. Faith Wilkerson
A native New Yorker, Dr. Faith Wilkerson moved to Richmond, Virginia in the summer of 2000 to attend Virginia Commonwealth University from which she holds a Bachelors in Mass Communications, Masters in Adult Education, as well as, a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. She spent much of her professional career at schools such as J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, Virginia Commonwealth University and Stratford University working in Student Activities and Multicultural Affairs.
While she will always have a love for student development and leadership, in 2016 she decided to focus full-time on her growing passion, UnlockingRVA – a full service event planning and promotions company based here in Richmond. Just two years in, her business has been tapped to work on Richmond Black Restaurant Week, Fire, Flour & Fork and HeART & Soul Brewfest to name a few.
