Tanasha Cooksey

Peer Educator

Hello everyone! I'm Tanasha Baby Cooksey (I prefer to go by my middle name Ms. Baby or Ms. Cooksey) I am currently a college student-athlete attending Webber International University in Babson Park, FL. Over the past 4 summers, I have been a swim instructor for young children and I can't wait to see what it's like to work with an older age group! Mental health for both children and adults is my passion and if I can make someone’s day even slightly better, then I've succeeded that day!

Marketing Coordinator

I am an undergraduate media and communication major in my sophomore year at Virginia Wesleyan University. My interests in journalism and using the media as a tool for elevating voices have been driving forces in shaping my academic and professional pursuits. I aim to support mission-driven organizations who are out there making tangible positive changes. Assuming the role of news editor for my university’s newspaper, The Marlin Chronicle, has deepened my passion for storytelling and effective communication. There is a lot of power in increasing the reach of important messages, and I hope to devote my time to doing so.
