Natasha, who started at US Chess in November 2015, was promoted to Art Director in January 2022. Prior to that, she was our Graphics Assistant and then Creative Content Coordinator. She came to us after working at The Boys and Girls Club in Bloomington, Indiana and the Indiana Daily Student at Indiana University. She also served on the Executive Board for Center for Community Justice, a non-profit that uses Restorative Justice to heal people. Natasha likes chess because it "provides a great opportunity for individuals to improve concentration, memory, logical thinking, and build social skills, particularly for our youth. It also helps individuals of all ages create connections in their communities." Outside of work, she enjoys art in all forms, travel, board games, and empowering others in her community.
