About Tasha

Get to know me

Bobcat

I graduated from Ohio University, worked a permanent position there, and am currently working towards my Master's degree. I'm a bobcat at heart.

Traveler

I love to travel. I've been all the way from Alaska to New Hampshire to down south in the Bahamas! I enjoy experiencing new things, meeting new people, and seeing new places.

Athlete

I love playing sports. I especially enjoy running, basketball, and ice-skating. When I'm not at my house, I'm usually on a court, field, or bike path.

Farm Girl

From llamas, to ducks, to miniature pigs, I've grown up with them all. I love being out in the country and enjoy horseback riding on a nice day.
