ABOUT

vau've Anais

Vau've is legacy driven, believer, servant, philanthropist, first generation/serial entrepreneur, advocate and founder of boutique consulting firm and VA agency.  

Her innate ability to connect people and concepts to achieve desired goals prompted Davis to launch Official Anais Consulting (formerly Official Anais PR) in 2010. Official Anais Consulting is a firm specializing in brand planning, resource development and strategic marketing. The purpose of her firm is twofold: to elevate the brands of local entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits to national and international levels; and to give back to the community.

Davis’s “Charity Corner” blog and her annual toy drive are two of her most prized charitable projects. She understands that it is challenging for nonprofit entities to market their programs and good deeds effectively with small budgets and even smaller staffs; therefore, she features two organizations or charities bimonthly on her blog with the goal of giving them exposure and soliciting donations for causes that serve communities throughout Illinois and the Greater Chicagoland areas.

Additionally, Vau've founded an annual toy drive "Blessed 2 To Be A Blessing"to support single mothers during the Christmas season, one of the hardest times of the year for some parents. Due to overwhelming need, her consulting firm has hosted toy drives over six years, sometimes, multiple toy drives in one season garnering support all across the country. Support for Davis’s charitable efforts was has been so great that she has been able to collaborate with local organizations to support single mothers across the U.S. and across the Chicagoland area. 

Davis has received several awards and recognitions for her professional and charitable contributions to local entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations. In 2013, Official Anais PR was awarded the “Best Non-Profit PR and Event Planning Firm” by Black Celebrity Giving. The firm also received a “Humanitarian Award” from Fashion Arts & Humanitarian Fetes. Davis has been recognized as one of the “Most Powerful Women on the South Side of Chicago” for her contributions to the community.

In addition to her charity, Vau’ve created grew an entrepreneur focused networking event called "Shark Tank Social" from her love of the show. As a serial entrepreneur Davis serves as the Principal owner of The Legacy Architects, LLC., and Aligned and Anchored LLC. As well as the creator of Your Brand Ministry Apparel.
