Cameo Podcast Host
Markita a.k.a Keeeduhhh was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. She is a nurturing and firm mother of two amazing young men. They have been her greatest strength and motivation since their birth. One of Markita’s greatest accomplishments professionally has been making the decision to fire her employer to become a profitable entrepreneur. In 2021, she started her own business, 4 Unity Designs. She later extended her services to include 4 Unity Design Notary Services. She enjoys reading, learning new things from the University of YouTube, Yoga, sightseeing and exploring new places, and trying new recipes. Markita also prides herself on exercising regularly and eating healthy. While she is in most instances the quieter co-host of the varietal, this calm demeanor should not be mistaken for her not having a perspective. She is a Scorpio….LOL!
