About LaNonda “Loni” Willis is a graduate of Northern Illinois University who earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in Radio and Television Production. Throughout her college years, she modeled with the production of “The Miss Black Illinois Pageant” and an organization entitled “Present Perfect.” After graduation, she began her career in media at V103 Radio (in Chicago),and eventually worked for Clear Channel Communications.
Prior to working for Clear Channel, she re-kindled her life-long passion for fashion photography which led to photographing and training aspiring models. Her affiliation with a local modeling troupe motivated her to launch an organization entitled “Julia Models.” From her promotions and event coordinating experience via the radio stations, she was able to organize and produce fashion shows for various organizations in addition to her own. Loni was also able to utilize her experience in broadcast voice-overs, as a platform to launch her own training program of (7) years which she continues to facilitate to this day.
In 2008, she became Founder, CEO and Creative Director of “Fab avec Amour,” a 501 (C) 3 fashion-based charity organization. Through the “spirit of love,” this foundation uses fashion, music and other entertainment related projects to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, Autism and Breast Cancer. As a Breast Cancer survivor, daughter of a parent with Alzheimer’s Disease and mother of an autistic child, Loni was inspired to merge all her passions together to make a difference in the lives of others.
For the past year Loni has been a radio host/producer on “Intellectual Radio” for a talk show entitled “Your Now” with Kevan J. Ware. Topics of discussion revolve around ways to enjoy & embrace life in the present moment.
