Natasha works closely alongside Angie and the team to develop strategy for the overall business. She also works directly with the Business Managers for the two Skintopia locations to support and nurture the teams there. Tash is a qualified Skin Therapist and has completed a Bachelor of Business Studies (majoring in Marketing Communications). Following completion of her studies, she embarked on an overseas adventure and was lucky enough to take part in a Management Training Program for Dermalogica in the United Kingdom.

During her 3 years in the UK, she spent time working in Operations, Finance, Sales & Marketing. In her last role she project managed the opening of a new Dermalogica flagship store in the UK.In 2007 Tash returned to NZ to take over the day-to-day running of the family business and to grow the Dermalogica brand in NZ. Some highlights of her career have been setting up a Dermalogica flagship in Auckland, expanding Dermalogica in to prestige retail locations (and creating job opportunities for professional skin therapists in the process), being the first skin care company to launch an online partnership program benefitting wholesale business partners , and more recently, developing the concepts behind Skintopia. The Icehouse Owner Manager Program was a turning point in her career and provided her with the tools required to step up and take over the ownership of the business (2018).

Tash has the entrepreneurial bug and thrives off innovation and coming up with creative solutions for the business. She is also a passionate advocate for helping women progress in their careers. In her spare time she loves hanging out with her husband and their three kids, making homemade sauerkraut and hitting the gym.
