“Sex with Dr. Jess” Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelorette: Natasha
Natasha Sokolovski is a 26 year old community service worker, who has been serving the City of Toronto since she was a 16 year old teenager. She started as a lifeguard and swimming instructor. Since then, she has worked for three different divisions at The City, all the while completing her undergraduate degree at York University, and currently back at it for a second degree.
Her first degree was in Psychology and Natasha is now pursuing a second degree in Political Science. Natasha is in the top ten per cent of her program and a member of the International Golden Key Honour Society. This April, Natasha will have completed her second degree and looks forward to taking a small hiatus from school. Small being the operative word, as she will be pursuing a Masters degree in Public Administration in 2017.
Presently, Natasha is a full-time caseworker with the Children’s Services Division. She loves seeing people grow, develop and overcome their difficulties. Having extensive front line experience, she aims to shed light on how policies impact the daily lives of people, in her future role as a policy analyst or evaluator.
Aside from academics and public service, Natasha currently owns a successful make-up and beautician service and consultancy, www.makeupbytash.com. With her deep-rooted and long-standing passion for makeup, Natasha consistently strives to build and improve her knowledge when it comes to trending products and techniques and instilling women with joy and confidence by making them feel beautiful is incredibly fulfilling for her. Her company services weddings, special events and professional photo shoots.
Natasha is a meticulous planner who lives the saying “failing to plan is planning to fail.” She prides herself as a maverick excel user.
In her spare time, she can be found at the gym, at a spin class or going for a run.
Naturally inquisitive, Natasha is a life-long learner in every dimension. The term ‘complacency’ terrifies her. She is continually propelling to grow and develop.
Recognizing that she only has one life to live, Natasha is definitely making the most of it!
