As an educator, Dr. Niesha Ham-McMillian fell in love with watching her students grow and excel. They were successful in passing state required standardized tests but she wanted more for her students.


Dr. Ham-McMillian, the daughter of a USMC veteran, created Marnie LEADS Academy to promote leadership, financial literacy and entrepreneurship.
