Taina Maki


Taina Maki is a second year MPA student with a concentration in social policy. Over the last ten years, Taina has worked a number of Twin Cities area nonprofit organizations, including Rainbow Families, OutFront Minnesota, TakeAction Minnesota and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. She's passionate about building a better future for our children and hopes to take her newly honed public policy skills back to Minnesota's nonprofit sector when she graduates in May.

Taina's favorite place to pubTalk -- debate current issues and public affairs -- is after the kids go to bed, with good beer and even better friends.
