This month we are featuring newly elected board member Marsha Mutisi. Marsha is a trusted, accomplished leader who applies her collaborative skills in mobilizing actions and resources for working groups and service organizations e.g. Washington Global Health Alliance and various immigrant communities in the Pacific Northwest. Currently Marsha is a Senior Finance Audit Principal at Nordstrom. Her prior professional background focused on management consulting with Accenture and mostly at Microsoft as well as several other major companies in the Pacific Northwest. She holds a Bsc degree in Business Administration. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, gardening in her backyard and community gardens, live music events and spending time with her two children.
I was born and raised in Zimbabwe and currently have all my family members living in Sub-Saharan Africa including my 2-year-old son – this mission means a lot to me as malaria is a disease I am familiar with first hand!
2) How does your current role tie into your role on the Malaria Partners International Board, if at all?
3) When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your time?
I enjoy spending time with my kids, volunteering within the immigrant communities and gardening.
4) What’s a story of yours that you don’t get to tell often enough?
I setup a high school friend on a blind date with a boy I knew from my Interact club and they just celebrated 23rd wedding anniversary and have 5 kids!!
