Natasha Nurse is a licensed attorney by trade who held various stints in the corporate world prior to making a foray into fashion, writing, media and entrepreneurship. Natasha started Dressing Room 8 to provide a web-based resource where women can gain personal and professional empowerment through her fashion and lifestyle focused blog, consultation and coaching services. She is also the Program Coordinator for Long Island Girl Talk, a Long Island community-based start-up program that teaches teenage girls of color how to produce, direct and star in their own television show about women’s issues in their communities. Recently, she partnered with her husband to create the podcast WokeNFree, where they have fun, informed and thought-provoking conversations on different topic each week.

Natasha discusses the winding path of her career, starting with her interest in veterinary science, followed by graduating law school and working in document review, legal recruiting, legal education & sales -- and how realizing her true desire to be creative, innovative, and empowered in her career (and to empower other women as well) led her to a new path of entrepreneurship.

She also shares valuable advice about:

  • How our self-limiting beliefs stop us from taking action – and how she helps people overcome these beliefs
  • How fashion can help you be confident and powerful – and how she helps women feel happier when they see themselves in the dressing room mirror
  • The constant battle that every entrepreneur has: being in their business vs working on their business -- and the key questions that every entrepreneur should be asking themselves to ensure their businesses continue to grow
  • How being a strong communicator as a business owner can make you more money  

Natasha also shares how Long Island Girl Talk, where young women collaborate to create all aspects of their own television shows, is a huge boost to their levels of confidence and self-worth.

We also talk about how the WokeNFree podcast invites listeners to think about issues from different viewpoints and engages them in interesting conversations.

Natasha’s full bio:

As a New Yorker, born and raised, Natasha is used to bumping into people from all walks of life daily, which makes it easy for her to accomplish her goal of meeting someone new and learning something new each and every day. A licensed attorney by trade, Natasha held various stints in the corporate world prior to making a foray into fashion and writing. Having been a victim of bullying as a child growing up, Natasha learned to seek out fashion as a source of strength early on and actively uses it as a personal means of empowerment; because of her own experiences with bullying and her strong desire to help others within the plus size community, Natasha started Dressing Room 8  to provide a web-based resource where women can gain personal and professional empowerment through her fashion and lifestyle focused blog, consultation and coaching services. Dressing Room 8 helps women learn how to think with clarity, dress with confidence, and live with purpose.

Not one to stay idle, Natasha loves to keep a full calendar. Aside from running Dressing Room 8, Natasha is an Adjunct Professor at Nassau Community College where she teaches Introduction to Women’s Studies. She is the Lifestyle Editor for Plus Model Magazine. She is also the Program Coordinator for Long Island Girl Talk, a Long Island community-based start-up program that teaches teenage girls of color how to produce, direct and star in their own television show about women’s issues in their communities. Recently, she partnered with her husband to create the new podcast WokeNFree and she is the host of Our Voices on 90.3 WHPC.

Prior to starting Dressing Room 8, Natasha created the WST Feminist Blog, an open forum for sharing original content, links and creative work addressing cutting-edge women’s issues. She is also an animal lover and a big film buff. When she’s not traveling or juggling multiple projects, she likes to spend time with her husband Kahlil, cat Toby and dog, J.J. And, she always finds time to indulge in her obsession with elephants.
