Who is Keisha?

What can you say about a woman like Keisha?! 

I like my food & wine! That’s a good way to start. I am a true people-person! I majored in sociology and communication in college to deepen my 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, I began my career in the non-profit, educational sector. I have had a deep love of food preparation, presentation, taste and enjoyment since I was a young girl. I truly believe that community, family and love are built through shared experiences over food!  I love to travel the world, read classic and contemporary novels, watch movies, see plays, spend time with family & friends, d and take walks at Green Lake with a grande, non-fat caramel macchiato placed firmly in hand.

Currently I am pursuing my Master of Arts degree in Student Development Administration at Seattle University. I also work on campus as the coordinator of off-campus student life. This will further my passion and career in helping diverse students pursue their college degree. I will graduate in June 2014. I will continue to create masterpieces in the kitchen (mine and others) as well as sample the many restaurants that Seattle has to offer.
