Tasha felt drawn to stand up for the underdog from a very young age, especially with alcoholism and various family struggles being a part of her childhood. At age 19, Tasha became a top Realtor. She later received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Community Development and completed her Master’s Degree work in Education. She has since managed many youth-serving organizations, developed coalitions, and organized community-wide campaigns. She recently founded a youth-led nonprofit agency in rural Oregon and within 18 months she authored and obtained nearly one million dollars in grant awards to help sustain all programming.
Today, Tasha finds great personal value in being a part of a movement which empowers young people to conquer through their hardships while learning to use their voice for the greater good. She believes that the “underdogs” have the most potential when they realize their inner power, strength, and purpose. She is thrilled to bring new tools and strategies that will help to grow existing programs, revenue streams, and expand YMO's reach.
Tasha spends her free time hiking, biking and playing outdoors with her two kids and her labradoodle named Romeo.
