Thoughts on being a Visionary: Being a visionary means that you see the strength in things, people, and situations that others do not see. You not only strive to make a difference in the moment, but in the future as well. You use your influence to positively impact others around you.
What would you say to the women of yesterday, today, and tomorrow
To the women of yesterday...thank you for your strength and resilience. The struggles that you endured while paving the way for me are beyond appreciated. Thank you for being positive examples for the generations that followed you.
To the women of today...when women support each other, incredible things can happen. It can bring unity, strength and plenty of visions to life. It is our turn to lead by example!
To the women of tomorrow...behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women. We have your back!

She has a non profit, Teaching and Empowering Athletes Mentally, Inc (also known as T.E.A.M.) which helps athletes develop a strong emotional foundation for success by providing services that promote mental conditioning, teach skills to help cope in healthy ways and advocate for mental health services to be more accessible. Natasha's passion surfaced when she struggled with anxiety during college and had a bad experience with the lack of support she found at the student counseling center. She knew that she wanted to help make sure that no one else, especially young girls and women, felt unsupported when they were vulnerable enough to ask for help. As a student athlete, she also saw first hand how physical conditioning was prioritized while there was a lack of focus placed on mental conditioning. She wanted to advocate for more mental health services and resources to be available for student and professional athletes and help normalize mental health within sports.
