Position
Mentorship Chair, Alumni & Community Engagement Chair

Her travel and experiences in Western Europe serve as the foundation for her core values and worldview. When she was relocated to the United States, she settled in Tampa, Florida, where Kisha graduated from Robinson High School attended the University of Tampa for 3 years as a scholarship athlete and ultimately graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Florida. Upon graduation she took a job in Public Relations in Atlanta, GA where her enjoyment of hiking, rock climbing and white water kayaking gave birth to her environmental activism and awareness of rural inequality across the Georgia and North Carolina mountains. In Atlanta she worked in her Little 5 Points neighborhood to curb gentrification and end the police sanctioned persecution of the homeless community. Since that first job, she has worked a variety of jobs across many different industries including advertising, marketing, education, retail and sales which provided a unique foundation to inform her continuous activism. Kisha sees social justice as the only way to build a sustainable future and champions multiple progressive causes. In 2015 Kisha left corporate America and became a Realtor, forming her own real estate team focused on community minded real estate. When Kisha is not helping individuals achieve their financial dreams through real estate or fostering the development of healthy communities by supporting local organizations and businesses, she takes delight in attending live music concerts, fine dining, relaxing on the beach and traveling to almost anywhere!
