Espresso Culture was founded in 2009 due to her new passion for anything natural in the hair and beauty industry.

    Tinka Barnes

    Dr. Tinka Barnes

    Born and raised in Southern California, I left sunny warm beaches to head to the deep south for higher education. It was a very different pace in the south at the Historically Black University, JSU. I received my BS in Science and found a husband who was from Kansas City. That is how I made it to the Midwest for Medical School at KU. While in med school I manged to have my first son, get married and start participating in West African Dance. I continued to dance and made my way to New Orleans for Residency and had another son, in Louisiana. After Hurricane Katrina we came back to KC and I had my third son and finished residency in Family Medicine. I continue to do West African dance and was a principal dancer in a local troupe. I am currently practicing in a community health clinic that treats the underseved in the urban core. I have had my fourth son and will continue to be involved in community activism and empowerment. I am truly blessed.
