Born and raised in New Mexico, Misha Knea wore a law enforcement uniform for 9 years, and most recently served as the Community Liaison and Volunteer Coordinator for the Bend Police Department.

Her empathetic nature and personal knowledge of struggles among military families led her to follow in her father’s footsteps in law enforcement, and then alongside Veterans who were volunteers with the Bend Police Department. She has tremendous respect for those who serve.

Misha is also an avid trail runner. It is her belief that people have the power to create a healthy balance between their personal and professional lives in order to thrive, and she looks forward to providing a different act of service for the Veteran and military community at Mission 22.
