She is a founding member and board president of the GT Entertainment Network, an affinity group of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association.
Lewis is the owner of Dream of Dréa Productions, which serves to accentuate cultural awareness in the production of feature films and theatrical events. She is contracted toproduce the feature film Family Pictures, a supernatural thriller, with Why Not Films, LLC. Lewis co-wrote From Ophelia to Omega with her mother, Albany resident Vallerie Lewis.
