Makisha was introduced to TNFP last year when her family took on a community garden plot at Wedgewood Urban Garden. Now she is thrilled to be part of our staff as she steps into her role of Meals Coordinator. Makisha's desire to serve others was inspired by her father's military service. Her career began in nursing, but recently she changed gears in order to embrace her true passion of cooking and serving her community. She stays busy balancing her job at TNFP while finishing her Bachelor of Science Degree in Culinary Arts Management at The Art Institute of Nashville and enjoying family time with her husband and 3 children. In her leisure time she loves cooking and gardening (of course), and trying new activities like camping and zip-lining. Stop by our kitchen - Makisha is looking forward to meeting you!
