Mikala joins Genesys Works as a Program Coordinator. She was the first in her family to graduate from college and attended the University of Minnesota Twin Cities where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. After her undergraduate career, she worked as an Assistant Program Coordinator for a community collaborative that sought to address the gaps and overlaps in the services available to teen parent families in Hennepin County.

Mikala is excited to build meaningful relationships that empower each young professional to have the confidence and skills to achieve their goals.
