Natasha started her career in administration working for the City of Gulf Breeze, Florida. Her interest in healthcare began in 1999 while serving as a senior leader within the General Nutrition Center family in Gulf Breeze, Florida. She was accountable for managing the sales performance for 13 stores in the panhandle region.
In 2006, Natasha worked for a private Executive Medical Practice which led her to begin her healthcare career within the revenue cycle at a local hospital system in Pensacola, Florida. Natasha’s passion to teach others, allowed her to spearhead and create an organization-wide revenue cycle training program, that included a computer training lab. Natasha was responsible for identifying areas of continuous process improvement, development, monitoring, and training of Patient Access Services and Patient Financial Services applications. Her outstanding performance was awarded by becoming the Employee of the Quarter in December 2015.
In 2016, Natasha took the lead over the Patient Access Support Services departments. Here, she managed over 138,000 procedures annually in the areas of outpatient and inpatient diagnostics and surgery scheduling for four hospitals, two medical parks, the medical group practices, and Andrews Institute of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Gulf Breeze.
After a few years in that leadership role, Natasha had an interest in navigating the managed care process and became a Provider Contracting Professional. Natasha negotiated contract terms, payment structures, and reimbursement rates with providers in a large territory in the Florida panhandle.
In late 2019, Natasha shifted her focus back toward hospital operations. She partnered with a national healthcare system. She managed the day-to-day operations within the revenue cycle for emergency services, labor and delivery, outpatient and admitting departments, with a high focus on metrics analysis and process improvement.
Natasha is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of West Florida. She lives with her husband and her blended family of six children, and two Pekingese dogs.
