Get to know Natasha

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Creating an electric environment where employees flourish, clients’ practices thrive and Zymeda pioneers revolutionary innovative technology and processes that creates competitive differentiation. I really enjoy provoking inspiration in the staff to devise analytics and data that helps us make purposeful decisions and implement a strategy with a unique precision.

What inspires you most in your life and at work?

Humans are inspiring as a species. I love that we can be so alike and yet so very unique. I consistently encounter people with characteristics that inspire me to be better. Once we achieve a goal, we can just set another and continuously improve. We are capable of so much more than we realize and I hope I never stop growing and improving.

What is your spirit animal?

My spirit animal is the elephant. “Elephant, the ever gentle and wise spirit animal, exemplifies focused Power and Strength. Your deep spirit rules with dignity and abiding love for your people. Your talent to rally the troops and lead them to victory is the stuff legends are made of. You are, like your spirit animal, a natural provider who uses confidence, persistence, and commitment as tools for “bread-winning,” including feeding the Spiritual nature.” 

I would think my colleagues and family would agree. My husband would likely quote the elephant’s infamous memory… I can’t imagine why. 

Who is your role model and why?

I don’t think it exists in a single person. Everyone has something to be admired and something to improve. I aspire to be every day a little better than I was yesterday, unapologetically me, kind, understanding, inspirational, thought provoking, a good teacher, a good learner, a good wife, and successful but most importantly, I really want to be an amazing mom. That is the real measure of what I aspire to be. 

What is your favorite hobby?

I really love to travel to new places and taste new foods! Exercising makes me feel energetic and fabulous. I truly enjoy baking with my tiny human and watching movies by the fireplace on a rainy day. If I could do anything every day for the rest of my life it would be something on a warm beach somewhere tropical.

If you had one superpower, what would it be?

The ability to duplicate myself! If I could be solving healthcare workflow issues while spending time with my little one AND sitting on a beach somewhere… Jackpot!
