What can you say about a woman like Keisha?!
She likes her food & wine! That’s a good way to start. A true people-person Keisha majored in sociology and communication in college to deepen her understanding of people in groups and society and because she loves to socialize and engage in conversation – be it deep or surface-level stories for laughter. After college, she began her career in the non-profit, educational sector. She has had a deep love of food preparation, presentation, taste and enjoyment since she was a young girl. Keisha truly believes that community, family and love are built through shared experiences over food! She likes to travel the world, read classic and contemporary novels, watch movies, see plays, spend time with family & friends, do Zumba, hot yoga, and take walks at Green Lake with a grande, non-fat caramel macchiato placed firmly in hand.
After five years, Keisha left her professional position at the non-profit in August 2012. She is now pursuing her master’s student development administration at Seattle University. Keisha also works on campus as the coordinator of off-campus student life. This will further her passion and career in helping diverse students pursue their college degree. On a personal level, Keisha will continue to create masterpieces in the kitchen (hers and others) as well as sample the finest restaurants and food trucks that Seattle has to offer.
