About Me

Hello, my name is La'Shay S. Crayton and I invite you to share in my wanderlust of life!


Greetings Earthings! I am an Oakland, California native living and working  in the city version of  Disneyland... Better known as New York City!! I am married to the mightiest man of valor, Mr. Crayton (Bae, Babe and Cam).  I am completing my second master at Columbia University, studying to become a psychotherapist! Vocationally I am a trained social epidemiologist.  

My current research as a research scientist looks at major mood and depressive disorders.  Specifically I am interested in communities in Harlem.  I partner with Columbia University, communities and churches to study the effects, facilitators, barriers and stigma around accessing mental health care. My desire to pursue a public health degree came while studying Nutrition and Food Science as well as the humanities at the University of Ghana and throughout West Africa. 

I am the CEO of Crayton Consulting LLC., Where  under my private consulting firm I teach community based participatory research and help to design research studies as well as program planning.  I also provide counseling in person and online (E-Counseling).  My long-term vision is to provide therapy at my private practice, conduct research as well as own and operate a café with my husband.

I spend as much time as I can writing.  Most of my wanderlust of life centers around spirituality, vintage lifestyles, relationships, traveling, community, love, marriage, food and fashion.  Thank you for visiting my blog, you will find a feast of reflections about everything - but all of them are about how I live well and live well loved.

I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places.  Live out loud, enjoy life, be liberated, live well and live well loved.  Leave a comment, Please subscribe and  follow me on social media!
