YWTF-ATL Board of Directors Highlight: Natasha L. Foreman, MBA

The Board of Directors for the Younger Women’s Task Force Atlanta Metro Chapter (ywtfatlanta) came together and collectively decided to highlight each board member in both the blog and monthly newsletter as a way of sharing with members of the organization and the community the ladies that serve and stand firmly behind this great chapter. Today we will highlight one of our board members.

Some of you may already know Natasha L. Foreman. She serves on the Board of Directors as the Director of Communications and Marketing. What you may not know is why and how she began to serve in this capacity and what Natasha does when she is not handling the communications and marketing efforts of the chapter. Today you get the chance to find out.

Let us introduce to you Natasha L. Foreman…


Natasha L. Foreman, MBA is a Business and Entertainment Consultant, Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, Blogger, Mentor, and self-proclaimed “Change Agent”. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Black Studies at California State University, Long Beach and her MBA with a specialization in Marketing at Kaplan University. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Organization and Management with a specialization in Management Education, and a certificate in College Teaching.

Natasha has been involved in various philanthropic and grassroots movements for over 20 years. She is actively involved in her community, visiting and speaking with students at local K-12 schools throughout Orange County, California for over 18 years and independently throughout Metro Atlanta, Georgia for more than three years; and for more than one year now as a HOPE Corp Volunteer through Operation HOPE. Natasha has also been mentoring young people from tweens to adults who are in their twenties for numerous years. These are some of the reasons why Natasha came to ywtfatlanta.

“I was on Twitter and I tweeted something about women I believe and it was retweeted by one of my followers, and ywtfatlanta also retweeted it so as I was thanking both for the retweets I noticed ywtfatlanta and began to research the YWTF organization. I was looking for an organization that was multicultural and well-blended with women from all socio-economic, educational, religious, and cultural backgrounds,” Natasha explained.

“I saw that the demographics were younger women 20-39 and I thought that maybe this was right up my alley. I could be around other positive, making-things-happen women in their 30s that were experiencing similar issues that I am experiencing in both my professional and personal life while also working with and helping to mentor even younger women in their 20s,” she continued.

“So I reached out to ywtfatlanta to seek membership information and to see in what ways I could help serve the organization and Lauren Zink the Director of Communications and Marketing at that time connected me with Chapter Director, Terica Scott, discussed the opportunities for me to become a blogger and from there things just took off. I became a member and blog contributor in 2010, joined the board in January 2011, and was officially working in my current capacity the following month as we worked to finalize the details for the A.S.C.E.N.D. Leadership Conference for March. Now I’m on a mission looking for more bloggers and monthly newsletter contributors to join the ywtfatlanta family,” Natasha said smiling.
