Today we get to introduce you to one of our newest Project Managers, Mikaila! Mikaila was born and raised in Everett.  After attending Grad School at Notre Dame, she taught political science before joining TVA. Mikaila loves listening to political podcasts (if you ever need a rec), drawing, and hang out with her cat Meeko. During the last couple of years Mikaila learned how to make friendship bracelets, as well as play a few things on the keyboard including the intro to Changes by 2Pac. Keep reading to learn more about Mikaila!

What made you excited to join TVA?

I’d been teaching and wanted to branch out. I love teaching and hope to come back to it later on in life, but I wanted a faster paced environment and to be able to make an immediate impact on the community. I heard about TVA and the values here, it was a perfect match!

What’s your favorite weird food combination?

Salt on cantaloupe. I also put hot sauce on everything. One other thing is Lay’s potato chips (plain), a squeeze of lime, and dash of hot sauce. Delicious

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I was going to do it too, but my senior project was shadowing a vet and I passed out in the surgery room. I realized it wasn’t going to work out.

If you could have an endless supply of one food, what would you choose?

Cheez-Its. I love Cheez-Its. My roommate and I fight over them sometimes.

Would you rather always be 15 minutes late, or an hour early?

An hour early. When its socially acceptable to be late, I am late. Otherwise I’m always early.

If you could invite any three people over for dinner and be guaranteed they’d show up, who would you invite?

Ok this is tough. Who do I have questions for… Stephen Hawking would be one. I like physics and have some questions, but would need him to explain so I can truly understand. Another would be Thomas Jefferson. I’d like to talk to him about the founding of this country and how things like the constitution should be interpreted. Last, I’ll go with Wendy Williams. She will host and ask the questions. If anyone can get the truth, it’s her.
