United We Win!
LaShonda Jewell Holloway is known professionally as L. J. Holloway and describes herself as a divine original always willing to do the impossible to achieve the inevitable. At the age of 15, this Author, Advocate, and Aviatrix was not only named a “Footsoldier for Justice” by SCLC. Holloway also received the Martin Luther King Award, while in Law School, for her dedicated Service to Students. Hence, her thirst to serve and quest for Congress to represent the people of the Fifth Congressional District in Florida.
Holloway has worked in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill for Congresswoman Carrie Meek. She also negotiated the largest deal in History at Lexis-Nexis to United States Customs and began her Federal service at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a student at Howard University. Further, as a solution to cuts in Federal funding for Pell Grants, Dr. Holloway started awarding Scholarships to former Students as an incentive to get them to write more. However, the educator in Holloway also knew that she could and should do more. As a result, she formalized her Educational Policy consortium and formed L.J. Holloway & Associates, Inc. An organization that awards Scholarships during “The Celebration of Life Annual Benefit” to Students who major in Health or Science.
Furthermore, after overcoming a brain tumor, Holloway founded All About HealthCARE Advocates –a healthcare advocacy firm that helps patients navigate the health care system through relief, research, and referrals. In addition to being a Small Business owner and earning a law degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, Holloway matriculated at Harvard University School of Public Health where she presented case studies in Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
In her rare spare time, Holloway enjoys writing and logging flight hours towards an Aviation rating. She pens as L.J. Holloway and is the author of several nonfiction and Municipal Regulations in the District of Columbia; among them are Title 3, Elections and Ethics. For a better day, VOTE L.J. HOLLOWAY.
