Who We Are

Dr. Lekeia Conway



Big Sister Driven

A resident of Maryland but a Philadelphia native Dr. Lekeia Conway completed her Bachelor’s
and Master’s Degree in Psychology and Liberal Arts within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. She later went on to complete her Ed.D in Higher Education and Adult Learning. Dr. Conway spent several years in her field of expertise but ultimately she had to stop due to medical changes. A daily fight with Multiple Sclerosis coupled with her being a full-time wife, mother, and business owner of two companies U’Nique Dezigns and C and L Logistics, LLC is nothing short of amazing and makes her a “Woman of Worth”. Dr. Conway was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis RRMS on May 10, 2012. As a person diagnosed with MS, she strives to bring MS to the forefront by trying to engage more on a personal level with women within the community as opposed to larger organizations. Dr. Conway doesn’t look at MS as her curse but as her blessing as it allows her to help others through this difficult journey. “Helping one another is a part of the religion of our sisterhood” (Louisa May Alcott, unknown). Dr. Conway will continue to fight every day one day at a time to bring more awareness to Multiple Sclerosis!

Angie Spence

Vice President


Big Sister Fearless

Angie Spence is a native of Fayetteville, NC, but lives in Lawrenceville, GA with her husband of 20 years and her son who is 23 years old. She was diagnosed with RRMS (Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis) in September of 2019 after having vertigo for two months. She didn't know a lot about the disease, as she was the first person in her family to be diagnosed. Her studies were put on hold due to her vertigo, but she did not let her diagnosis stop her from getting her education, and in September of 2020 she graduated from Capella University with her Bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration. She was also invited to become a member of the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society due to her hard work and good grades. Since being diagnosed, Angie has not only advocated to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, she has also been a support for other women who have been newly diagnosed. This is one of the many reasons that Angie came together with like-minded individuals to form Alpha Eta Phi Multiple Sclerosis Sorority Inc. She mentions that it is important to have a support system outside of your family and friends. Although they are there for you it's hard for them to understand what you go through having a chronic illness. Having a sisterhood of women who are going through what you are is also a good support system to have as well as a drama and stress-free environment to prevent flare-ups. We are in this together, together in love. “I’m proud of her; she’s proud of me. There is no competition, animosity, envy, or jealousy. We’re just secure, confident women doing our thing while supporting each other.” – Sabrina Newby

Tiffany English

Secretary & Historian


Big Sister Brave

Tiffany English was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She is a single mother; raising one son. She earned her Associates Degree in Business Management and will be returning to earn her Bachelor’s. She is currently working full-time as a Senior Technical Service Analyst. In May of 2013, she was diagnosed with RRMS (Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis). She's the first person in her family to have MS. After being diagnosed, she researched to educate

herself about MS and all of the

treatments/resources that were available. She desired to be a part of an organization designed for women with MS, like herself, and who would become another source of support. She believes that God will not give you more than you can handle, and having MS has made her stronger. She is extremely excited to be one of the founders of Alpha Eta Phi Multiple Sclerosis Sorority Inc. because it will allow women like her to find true sisterhood. “Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.” – Carol Saline
