LaShawn Smith - Event Director
LaShawn Smith is an Event Organizer for an event planning company in New York City and the Event Director at The Furthering Fathering Corporation.
At Furthering Fathering, she oversees the coordination of special events, from conceptualization through to implementation, including marketing, budgets, venue and logistics, and event production. Event planning is one of her passions. Taking a good idea and bringing it to fruition is what she loves to do.
LaShawn is also a visionary, strategic planner and thinker, problem solver and an adviser to many, as well as a mentor and mentee. When she met Jeremy and Lamont, and they told her about the mission of Furthering Fathering, which is to minister to dads and families, combat fatherlessness, and promote fatherhood, she saw the importance of assisting this effort to tackle a major societal problem at its root, with the understanding that many issues that children (and adults) may face, can be prevented, avoided or mitigated by them having involved fathers.
Additionally, LaShawn lends her services to many other charitable organizations in an effort to uplift the community, and she serves in the church. She is thankful to be used as a vessel to help people in the areas of her gifting, and she looks forward to continuing to make a real difference and impact society for the better.
