Where did the name Mishakaudi come from? When Marissa was learning to talk as a small child, her mom would ask her what her name was and she would reply “Misha Kaudi Canoe”, which was her version of Marissa Kelly Mcandrew (her full name). Since then her family has always called her Mishakaudi, Misha or Mish for short, and it has stuck with her throughout her life. What more a fitting name than one originally manifested in the mind of a young child.. one that is open to all the creative energy and possibilites the world has to offer!
