President and Founder, Launch Consulting, LLC

Kia Levey-Burden is a passionate leader, a dedicated advocate, and a loving mother and wife. Kia is deeply committed to igniting passions and helping others discover their power and courageous leadership. Kia gets to work in this passion through her work at Launch Consulting as she works with leadership of diverse organizations throughout the state of Connecticut, supporting their hopes of becoming more effective leaders and organizations.

As the mother of a 13-year-old son and a now adult foster daughter, Kia is committed to equitable and quality opportunities for all children and, in particular, children of color who are in systems that don’t consistently provide pathways to success for them. After spending over a decade as single mom, being a mom is the job Kia loves the most! Kia is grateful for every opportunity that she has been blessed with and hopes to use every platform she’s been given to create opportunities for others.
