“My passion for public service led me to become a City of Miami Commissioner.”
Keon is the son of a City of Miami Police Officer. She raised him in Miami as a single mother with help from his grandparents, who raised fifteen children of their own. Keon initially worked for a Fortune 500 corporation. However, after earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Florida A&M University, a Law Degree from the University of Miami, and passing the Florida Bar Exam on his first attempt, Keon chose to work as an Assistant Public Defender because of his desire to serve his community.
Keon’s life of trust in God, hard work, and education carried him from living in public housing to working as an attorney in the Public Defender’s Office. As an Assistant Public Defender, Keon’s responsibility is to represent those who cannot afford legal counsel, and as a City Commissioner, Keon will serve and defend the public’s best interest every day.
