Krista C. Davis is a native of Nashville, TN. She is the wife of Daryl T. Davis, mother to Duriel, Trista, D'Llisha, and grandmother to two beautiful grandsons. Krista has many creative talents. She has been a hairstylist for 15 years. She has been sewing since age 12 and launched her own clothing line, Kris’Ta Collection, in 2010. In addition to her salon and clothier experience, she has aesthetically enhanced many houses in the Brentwood, Franklin, and Nashville areas as an interior designer. Krista finds peace and solitude in using these gifts, but still felt there was more to do.
Krista’s passion for education, community service, and helping others gain the exposure to reach their dreams was constant. She never failed to pray for direction and vision for this passion. With her desire to help young ladies sitting in her salon chair week after week and her own experience with her children, the path seemed inevitable. Sometimes no matter how much you plan for your children’s college experiences, life happens. Feeling that many middle class families pay into our student financial aid systems the most, it was not fair to see that the children of these hard working families were forgotten.
Then in August of 2011, God answered. “I was bestowed a vision, full of direction, from our Lord and Savior - a group of ladies from all backgrounds, careers, and the hearts and will of David slaying Goliath. The Elegant Ladies Foundation was born. Thirteen gifts from God that share the same vision. Mentoring, empowering, and offering exposure to dreams that we all dreamed as children,”
Krista says. A vision coupled with God’s purpose, ensures that dreams come true. These dreams do not only have to come true for ourselves. Dreams are realized to those whom we reach back and extend a hand.
