As a Northern Virginia native, Natasha graduated from George Mason University magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Government and International Politics, concentrating on Political Theory and Law and minoring in English Non-Fiction Writing and Editing in 2006. Upon graduating, she attended Howard University School of Law where she served as a student attorney in the Civil Rights Clinic and obtained her Juris Doctor degree (J.D.) in 2009.  

 

Natasha spent two years working with the Howard University School of Law Civil Rights Clinic where she provided pro bono services as a student attorney to represent plaintiffs whose civil rights were jeopardized.  It was during this time that the healthcare industry first sparked her interest. She advocated for a skilled African American obstetrician who was prevented from delivering a baby in a local hospital exclusively due to his race. Coming from a background of small business owners, Natasha graduated law school with a passion for helping doctors of all races and backgrounds achieve the ultimate goal of practice ownership.
