Our KSM History

It all started with a vision on the hills of UCLA. During my college years while on campus I found that it was so hard to find quality, effective, and affordable all-natural and organic hair/skin care products that catered to my unique needs! Always being innovative and driven, I sought out to simply create something for myself that didn't require me traveling far away just to find a suitable product. I needed something that a student on a budget could appreciate, yet something that also simply gets the job done...thus "Kyra's Shea Medleys" was born! :-)

With encouragement from friends, family, and even strangers who had the opportunity to use my hand-whipped Butter Creams, I went on to launch "Kyra's Shea Medleys, LLC." The journey has been nothing short of INCREDIBLE! From vendor events, natural hair conventions, radio interviews, and “Good Morning America"...it's all been an amazing blessing! With a FANTASTIC second year of business behind me, I know that my story can only continue to climb from here. I believe that: 

"I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me!" (Phil. 4:13).

Our KSM Team

Kyra Nicole, CEO & Founder

Kyra Nicole is a Kind, Young, Respectful and Ambitious woman in my 20s who loves to fulfill Needs, Imagine, Create, Optimize, Laugh and Express myself. (That was her attempt at an acrostic poem! LOL!) But really...her heart and personality are too BIG to fit into a box, which may be the reason why she does some of everything at KSM. She refuses to be limited to one thing and has no problem sharing everything she learns (she's just a natural teacher). We asked her what is her life's purpose and this is what she said: "I am on a mission to live by love, hope, and faith in God's plan for me. I channel that energy into KSM as it is my art, my expression, and one aspect of my passion for helping others. It's in my heart and purpose to give back, inspire, show love, educate, encourage and motivate the next group of young entrepreneurs by simply showing that...'It's Possible.'"

John Moore, COO/Marketing Director & Founder

John's life led him up to this role. Born and raised in Watts, CA to his background in finance working at the Federal Reserve and J.P Morgan Chase, his real-world experience as well as first-hand knowledge in the area of finance, operations, and marketing creates the perfect mixture to handle the role of COO/Marketing Director. His ten plus years of outstanding customer service (seriously, he has won multiple awards in this area) is just a bonus. Although his role is predominately behind the scenes, he makes sure that what's in front is the greatest representation of what the KSM brand stands for. He is our knight in shining armor and his weapons of choice: Macbook Pro and Android smartphones!

Michael Moore, CFO/Director of Public Relations

Michael is a great conversationalist who welcomes the idea of engaging in a thought-provoking discussion. Occasionally he likes to sing and write his own songs. He enjoys outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, and fitness and has a growing interest in woodworking...now that his dating profile is out of the way. ;-) We nicknamed him "Dyna-Mike" because he brings an explosion of humor and passion into every environment, including the nitty-gritty financial stuff that would make others flee. He loves the idea of turning something you conceptualize into an actual interpretation while understanding the beauty of creating, building, and preserving relationships on all levels! He fully embraces his CFO/Director of PR hats and wears them well.
