Ashro Woman: Lechana R.

Meet Ashro Woman of the Week, Lechana R. from Denham Springs, LA!

Deeply influenced by her mom, “Big Momma Dorothy,” Lechana appreciates the way her mom “gave it to her straight” and was always open, sharing her life experiences with Lechana. Lechana has taken that good upbringing to heart and gone on to live a life that matters: raising her own kids with faith, love and consistency; helping to feed the homeless…and working hard as a General Foreman at a nuclear power plant.

And of course, Lechana does make time for fun. She loves dressing up, shopping and spending time with her family. (When they’re extra lucky, she makes her best dish, seafood fettuccine—YUM.)
