Along with being Alaska Business’ Associate Editor, Tasha is a creative person who uses her talents at work to conceive, write, and edit unique and insightful content. At home, in addition to reading, sewing, video games, and whatever one does with yarn, she is obsessed with her variety of indoor plants which live or die dependent entirely upon their tolerance for over-watering and occasional neglect. Though Tasha was born in California, she’s an Alaskan at heart and has lived here most her of her life, with a brief exception when she left to pursue her education at the University of Wyoming, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English with minors in professional writing and Latin. The Latin she uses occasionally to amuse family and friends, but the English skills she picked up while learning Latin serve her daily in her efforts to make sure every comma on every page of Alaska Business is exactly what it should be.
