Natasha Lemke


Senior Assistant Director of Admission - Equity & Access

Natasha was born and raised here in Tacoma, Washington and has lived here ever since. She loves the proximity to the state Capitol and Seattle, while totally appreciating the mix of concrete and green spaces that Tacoma offers. One of her favorite places to visit is Five-Mile Drive. The fact that you can be part of the hustle and bustle without the congestion of larger cities makes Tacoma a true gem!

Natasha loves listening to music, playing volleyball, hanging out with family and friends and exploring the outdoors.

As a first-generation college graduate she is eager to help folks in the community understand how to navigate higher education so that they can see the possibilities of their own genius.
