Community Highlights: Meet Keisha Christian of Dropping Gemz®

Today we’d like to introduce you to Keisha Christian.

Keisha Christian is the owner of Dropping Gemz®, a multi-faceted company including personal care products, internationally award-winning books, and online school Dropping Gemz® Academy. She is also the Executive Producer of a nationally televised show of the same name, Dropping Gemz®, airing on Comcast Cable in addition to various streaming platforms.

A dedicated problem-solver, Keisha seized a persistent health problem which she faced as an opportunity to educate others on holistic healing. In 2007, Keisha’s health deteriorated, but her doctors were unable to diagnose the cause. Figuring she had nothing to lose, she met with a Natural Health Practitioner who suggested changes to her diet and exercise regimen. When her health and overall well-being improved dramatically, she began to explore how the simple choices we make every day determine how we feel. Keisha developed a unique, refined, and subtle to how she perceived the world. She discovered that we are permeable. We absorb and ingest our environment, from food and air to energy and emotion. With such thinking, Keisha was ready to heal and educate people about their bodies and their environment.

Consequently, she formalized her knowledge with several Master Herbalists to learn how plants can help the body heal itself. Alongside numerous Holistic Practitioners, Keisha explored how our thoughts and spiritual well-being are reflected in our physical selves. She became attuned to energy medicine and is now a Reiki Master. Besides teaching healing practices and mentoring, Keisha is also a renowned non-fiction author. She has earned several awards and nominations, including B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree for her Nonfiction Books Healthy Gemz and Holistic Gemz the I.A.N. award in Nonfiction: Outstanding Education/Reference for Holistic Gemz. She is also a finalist for The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Award for Nonfiction Book Holistic Gemz, Indie Diamond Book Award for Nonfiction Book Holistic Gemz, Next Generation Indie Book Award for Nonfiction Book, Holistic Gemz, and A.C.H.I. Magazine Awards Nominee for Health & Wellness, Author of the Year, and Educator of the Year. Drawing on two decades of being an educator, Keisha empowers her clients and students with knowledge. She emphasizes that even the smallest steps work synergistically to bloom into vibrant health—all you need to do is begin. She remains dedicated to exploring more effective ways to render holistic healing.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Being an entrepreneur is never a smooth road, but it has been a rewarding experience thus far. It has given me a chance to discover my talents as well as push myself to greater heights. If you had told me ten years ago that I would be an award-winning author and Executive Producer of my own podcast turned to television show Dropping Gemz®, I wouldn’t have believed it, but here I am doing it scared. I will continuously think outside of the box and live outside of my comfort zone.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I have to say that the one of that I am most proud of is the launch of my online School Dropping Gemz® Academy for Holistic Studies and the upcoming Loving On You Virtual Summit that I am planning for taking place March 10th-13th, 2021. You can register at
