After graduating she pursued her education further at the Culinary Arts Foundation in St. Paul. Once she finished culinary school she owned and operated her own restaurant.

Mallika joined the KOM team as a board member. While on the board she aims to learn more about being on the board and how she can continue to help her community through KOM. She knows how important being a board member is from making important decisions and creating and finding resources for the community. She is thrilled about her new role and happy to serve and support her community!
