Natasha Desjardins

Customer Service is a character-building position, just as it is a great learning platform. It’s fulfilling to know that I’ve contributed to some form of positivity in someone’s day.

With extensive customer service and problem-solving experience, Natasha provides a wide range of HR, recruiting, office management and event support to the CHIEF team and the hundreds of attendees that walk through our doors each month. Her administrative, organizational and event managment skills keep the wheels on the #BeBrave bus moving full steam ahead. It's safe to say we'd be lost without her! 

Natasha earned a BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice, as well an MS in Human Resources Management, from the University of Maryland, College Park. 

Hometown

I am from the pearl of all islands: Haiti.

Noteworthy Story or Next Adventure

Going back to Haiti two years after the hurricane was a really incredible experience for me. It was amazing to be home again, to enjoy the beaches, to see friends and relatives and to appreciate the richness of my home country. It reminded me why we are called the Pearl of the Islands!‬‬‬

Favorite App/Book/Pub

I would say my favorite book has always and will always be the Bible. No other book trumps it.

DC Go-to's

I would have to say I’m split between Mate DC Sushi—which serves up little pieces of heaven in my humble opinion—and the International Spy Museum.
