After high school, Keisha was employed as a legal secretary, then took a job as a phone sex operator. In February 1986 the owner of the phone sex company took her to the XRCO Awards. In March 1986 she appeared in her first adult feature, Reckless Passion. A female performer had backed out of a scene, and Keisha stepped in to replace her. She went on to appear in more than 300 films and videos.
In January 1987 she began stripping as a "feature dancer", making appearances at different strip clubs across the US and Canada in which she would appear as the "star attraction" for the week. She would generally perform four shows a night, along with autograph-signing sessions in which patrons could get a Polaroid picture taken with her, an autographed 8"x10" photograph or a lap dance.
Elegant Angel sponsored a "Win a Date with Keisha Contest", where the winner, who was chosen by audience votes, got to have dinner with her then receive a full, nude body massage. She is a sexologist and a California State Certified Sexological Body Worker, which involves a specialized form of educational erotic massage or Taoist Erotic Massage.
Keisha has appeared in several mainstream movies, such as her role as "Michelle the Pitching Machine" in the 2006 Artie Lange comedy Beer League. Her other appearances include the C. Thomas Howell action thriller The Sweeper in 1996 and the sci-fi horror film Watchers II in 1990; credited as "Raquel Rios" in both. She also appeared in the 1988 sci-fi film Droid.
