Kanisha has a Master's degree in Public Health and is a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), Tobacco Treatment Specialist (TTS), and a current member of the Arkansas Society for Public Health Educators (ARSOPHE). Prior to becoming the Wellness Director for First United, Kanisha served as the Mission Director for the Susan G Komen Arkansas Affiliate.
Staying active is a priority in her life so, after years of taking Zumba®, she got a license to teach. This led to becoming an AFAA group fitness instructor. In addition to Zumba®, her favorite classes to teach are cycling, boot camp, and she enjoys being a ‘participant’ in kickboxing and Yoga/Pilates. She also hopes to join a local running group soon. Kanisha is a true Arkansan that has a love/hate relationship with the Razorbacks, who truly enjoys watching sports - football (Go Steelers!), basketball and women’s volleyball. But most importantly, she truly enjoys encouraging others to adopt healthy lifestyles and says that it’s a great feeling when she can see change in others.
