As deputy country director, Natasha works to ensure an effective and results driven structure across iDE Mozambique’s portfolio. She plays a cross-cutting role, supporting both senior leadership and technical teams to meet the strategic goals of the organization, helping the former identify, jointly develop, and operate projects and assisting the latter to ensure execution and support day-to-day operations.
Recently promoted from the position of business and operations manager, Natasha is a skilled communicator, who thrives when working to transform “blue-sky thinking” into something impactful--especially for rural entrepreneurs. Before joining iDE, Natasha managed a language and research fellowship at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane’s College of Arts and Social Sciences. In previous roles she has led various aspects of project development and assessment around community-based natural resource management, and local governance structures.
Natasha holds BAs in political science, international affairs, and economics from Simmons University. Her maternal languages are Spanish and German but she also speaks of English, Portuguese, and French.
