Natasha has a long history of volunteerism in the adaptive sports, beginning as a shadow, and eventually becoming a volunteer as a teenager, into her adult years. After graduating from UMass Amherst with a Bachelor of Biology degree, she served in AmeriCorps at the Epilepsy Foundation of New England for two years and was hosted at Adaptive Sports Partners, growing an even deeper passion for the adaptive community, and gaining experience with many possible ways to create opportunities for inclusion in recreation. Natasha is overjoyed to be joining the team in this new role as Program Manager for the 2023-2024 winter season, and is looking forward to continuing her support of ASP’s mission. In her free time, Natasha loves to get outside; her favorite activities include snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, and rock climbing with friends. You can also find her baking at home.
