A vision comes alive this Spring with the opening of Jumping the Broom Bridal Studio. RaeShanda Lias-Lockhart is partnering with Gwendolyn Breshear and Carmelita Clay to bring a unique flavor in Kentucky's only African-American owned Wedding Boutique. "Along with many other fine items, Jumping the Broom will be the exclusive retailer for Randy Fenoli, who you might have seen on Say Yes to the Dress, as well as Francis Lewis from Project Runway," says RaeShanda.
This is a place that celebrates diversity, caters to size 0 through 30, and welcomes the LGBTQ community. The boutique is named for the clandestine practice during the days of slavery in which couples were wed in a ceremony that culminated with two partners literally jumping over a broom together, symbolically uniting them in love. This is still an essential part of many Afican American weddings today, and Jumping the Broom even offers lovely decorated brooms.
The ladies are excited to open Jumping the Broom Bridal Studio on March 28th at noon. The shop will then be open by appointment. It's located at 1300 W Muhammad Ali Ave inside the LCCC building. VIist shopjumpingthebroom.com and check out Facebook and Instagram for more information.

Bringing a truly outside perspective to the world of real estate, MyLee Corona offers new ideas and a unique sense of devoted compassion. “They become like a part of my family,” MyLee says of her clients. “Helping others succeed and thrive is so rewarding. I do all that I can to help them achieve their goals. I have been thankful to be moldable, being able to function as friend and close advisor in addition to the traditional real estate agent role, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
MyLee credits much of her drive to her familial background. A first generation American, her family came from Laos, a small country in Southeast Asia. They were of the Hmong people, an ethnic group that faces harsh persecution and slaughter as a result of their support of America. Her father, who worked with the CIA, brought his family here as refugees in 1980. There, he had been a village chief. Here, he had to start over from absolutely nothing. He had been one of fifteen children. MyLee was born here in America, one of nine.
MyLee has distinguished herself as an extremely assertive high achiever throughout her entire life. She was the self-described “Mother Hen” to her four younger siblings. It often fell to her to make sure that they were
fed and nurtured. She recalls walking the streets at an early age, looking for recyclable bottles and cans so that she could raise money to buy them food. Although she maintained high enough grades to skip a grade, she always worked in many ways to help support her tight-knit family. She took her first official job at the early age of fourteen. She hasn’t stopped working since.
MyLee lost her father four years ago. The pressure of the tribulations that he had faced left him haunted. He had succumbed to substance addiction and neglected his duties and role within the family. As life often tends to be, her feelings about him are complicated. “I never take lightly the sacrifices that he made,” she says. “I made the mindful and deliberate decision to take gratefulness and leave behind bitterness.”
Around the same time, she started to pursue a career in real estate. She has cultivated a reputation based on trust that only continues to build as she dramatically improves the lives of those for whom she works. As many have stated, “MyLee is my trusted friend in real estate.” Today, MyLee is the mother of four children and enjoys her life with her devoted husband. She lives by a simple edict that she instills in her kids. “If you’re not contribut- ing to society, you’re taking away from it,” she says. “Legacy is the most important thing to me. More than money, more than any kind of fame. That’s the thing that drives me in everything that I do.
