Program Associate

Natasha was born and raised in New York. She graduated from Indiana University Bloomington where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Social Welfare Advocacy. She spent a semester studying in Vienna, Austria where she taught underprivileged children English and studied art. Her passion for helping the community began in college, where she was involved in a student-run philanthropy organization raising money for the local children’s hospital and when she participated in the NYU Collegiate Internship Program (CLIP) through the Bronfman Center.

Prior to working at the Moise Safra Center, Natasha was a Planning Assistant at UJA-Federation of New York in the Leadership Engagement Department and the Government and External Relations Department. She also assisted the Social Media team in live streaming events and creating TikToks. Natasha’s passion for Jewish community engagement started when she attended a Jewish sleepaway camp for 10 years and was a counselor for 3 years. There she learned the importance of finding a home within the Jewish community.

In her free time, Natasha enjoys dancing, trying new recipes and restaurants, and traveling.
