Herliesha Gilliard

Charleston Ambassador

A southern girl at heart, Herliesha or ‘Liesha’ as she likes to be called was born in Georgia, but Charleston is her home! Having lived in many places Charleston is where she has always returned to. She is a mother of two girls (Gia 5 and Mila 1), who keep her on her toes!


Herliesha earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Claflin University and has continuously worked in the human service field. She holds a current position as an Autism Consultant for the state of SC. In addition, she enjoys researching and booking vacations for others in her role as a travel advisor.


In her spare time she enjoys meeting new people, traveling, planning events, crafting, and trying new restaurants! She’s known as the planner among her friends. If there is a new spot to try, she’s probably heard of it!


She believes that “Brown Skin Brunchin” is just what Charleston needs. It’s an outlet from everyday life that gives you a chance to connect with women you may otherwise never have gotten to know. Not to mention, great food and drinks are involved and that’s always a good combination! ;-)
