Myeshia Jones


Myeshia Jones has worked to educate communities on anti-racism, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through a sovereignty-system change approach. She received her undergrad in business management with a focus on leadership from Baker College and a master’s degree in strategic communication and leadership from Spring Arbor University.

Myeshia leads the Black Food Sovereignty Coalition in her local community and believes strong health initiatives must come from true resident engagement. She has taken her community on a learning journey that affirms and elevates resident-led solutions; building skills and knowledge in small-plot city gardening, healthy eating, and food justice for Black and Brown people. With experience in healthcare administration, advocacy, and policy change; program development and implementation; youth development; and transformative leadership, Myeshia combines this with her lived experience to help make a positive change in the communities she serves.

She enjoys mentoring youth who have experienced trauma by helping them use their lived experiences as fuel to become the leaders they were meant to be. In her free time she enjoys traveling to other countries and learning from diverse populations across the world on how to be more culturally competent and empathetic. Myeshia has a focus on intentional healing from her past trauma and breaking the generational curses that were created from racism and oppression.
