Markisha Sallie

Markisha was born and raised in Detroit, MI.  She attended and graduated from Laura F. Osborn High School in 1996.

Markisha earned a Master’s in Positive Psychology and a Bachelor’s in Business Management. She has a passion to serve. Markisha states, “To serve is the only euphoric feeling that always leaves a lasting imprint not only on the server but the people being served”. Service is what inspired her to obtain a Master’s in Positive Psychology.

Markisha develops and facilitates student workshops for “Work4Success” program. She has the wonderful opportunity to have participants look at the glass half full instead of half empty in all situations and how to take a didactic look with a positive lens at life’s challenges. People already know the negative but how do we assist them to renew their mind and look at the positives? She enjoys seeing the happiness and fulfilled smile on the students face when they have an “aha moment”. 

 Markisha has been married to James Sallie since May 1998. They have two children Michelle and James.
