Founding President & CEO

Tanesha Windom is no stranger to life's challenges. She formed My Sister's Keeper in response to her own tumultuous adolescence and the growing number of hurting, under-privileged, under-valued, and under-served young ladies in need of love, wisdom, guidance, and resources. This human servant, advocate, and philanthropist has led the organization in positively impacting the lives of thousands of youth ages 7-24. Affectionately referred to as Ms. Tanesha, she has demonstrated exceptional and expansive organizational leadership, administrative capabilities, program development, strategic planning, fund development, project management, and effective client-based services. She is also a limited-licensed professional counselor who has earned a Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Administration from Rochester College and a Master's of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Detroit Mercy. Windom is a member of the American Counseling Association. She is passionate about utilizing her expertise to "keep" her girls on the path to success. Inasmuch, she authored and implemented MSK curriculums, Keep Her and I Am a Keeper: The 7 P's to Healthy Youth Development, which contribute documentable evidence for favorable program outcomes. Tanesha loves spending quality time with her two sons, writing, singing, the arts and world travel. She credits Almighty God and gives God all the Glory for her life's achievements. As an outflow of her gratitude, she aims to share the greatest gift with others, which is love.
