It is my honor to accept a position on the Redbud Board of Directors. I believe in the Redbud vision of cultivating a community of vibrant and diverse women who influence culture and faith. I want to fearlessly expand the feminine voice in our churches, communities, and culture and I want you to join me.

As a formal introduction: I was born and raised in South Carolina, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, and served six years as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps (obtaining the rank of Captain). Following active duty, I served as a federal government employee at the Department of Homeland Security. I am currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC campus, where I anticipate a Spring 2014 graduation. My independent study areas include prayer and fasting, racial reconciliation, and biblical justice.

I use my blog, A Sista’s Journey, to engage, equip, and empower readers to live out their true calling in Jesus Christ. I am passionate about leadership, mentoring, serving the community, and education. At my local church, I serve as founder and Co-Director of the Women’s Mentoring Ministry where we intentionally disciple women to know and love God, know who they are in Christ Jesus, and love their neighbors as Christ loves them.

In my spare time (what spare time), I enjoy reading, dancing, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends. I love great food, sunshine, cookies-and-cream milkshakes, moose tracks ice cream, pizza, and just about all things chocolate. I am married with one daughter.

Raise your voice. Raise your voice. Raise your voice. And take action.

Love and blessings, Natasha
