Meet your Barista: Mikayla Nix of THINK Coffee

Conway Institute of Music

Today’s Meet your Barista is Mikayla Nix from THINK Coffee at the Dave Ward location. Mikayla has been working with THINK for about two years and loves the Daydream drink.

I actually went down to see her on Saturday, which also happened to be her birthday, and I got that Daydream drink, and let me tell you, it did taste like an adult chocolate milk!

Mikayla is a person who has endured to overcome adversity, and she always has a smile on her face when you walk into THINK.

Today, we learn a little more about what is important to her and some things you may not know in this Meet your Barista.

Short Bio
I am the oldest of 5 children, and we are all very close. I think some would find it interesting to know that I have not had hair since I was 10, due to an autoimmune disorder Alopecia Universalis. While it was a long road to accepting myself and this condition, I feel that it has helped me to become who I am today.

I try to bring in a fun and bubbly attitude wherever I can, and when necessary, a little sass to lighten the mood! Most of the people I work with know me as one of humor and wit. I always look to do a good job with anything I do, but I also try to have some fun with it!
