Natasha grew up in Santiago, Chile, and moved with her family to the thriving metropolis of South Bend, IN as a teenager. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2018, where she won the Student Leadership Award for her involvement with a student-led project that focused on giving voice to untold stories of difference and identity. During college, Natasha travelled to El Salvador six times to conduct fieldwork on the incarceration of women after suffering obstetric emergencies, and wrote her senior thesis on these cases.
Natasha has worked as an asylum paralegal at the National Immigrant Justice Center in Chicago, and spent a year in Chile as a Fulbright grantee interviewing university students who had been sexually harassed or assaulted, using her findings to advocate for victim-centered anti-harassment policies. Prior to starting law school at Yale in the fall of 2021, Natasha worked as a domestic violence caseworker for immigrant women in northern Indiana. With Cambridge Coaching, she particularly loves helping prospective law school students unlock their potential and work towards their dreams with a blend of self-compassion and determination.
In her spare time, Natasha is working towards becoming a certified yoga teacher. She has a severe aversion to running.
