Natasha grew up in Wiltshire and graduated from The University of Exeter with a BSc Anthropology and Psychology and Politics in 2017, where she spent her third year abroad at the University of Ottawa, Canada. Having also volunteered in Tanzania for 2 months, the majority of Natasha’s free time is spent planning her next trip.
Natasha’s interest in commodities, emerging markets and the potential to travel drew her to Vallis Group Limited in January 2019, after returning from 12 months travelling, Australia, Asia and New Zealand. Originally a member of the West Africa team, as an Operating and Reporting Assistant, managing Togo, Ghana and Nigeria, Natasha then transferred to the Marine and Cargo Surveying team in April 2019. This new opportunity allowed her to contribute to the supervision of over 10 million tonnes in 19 operating ports, as well as managing the operations directly. Natasha has also had a significant role in the development of our bespoke in house Live Reporting application, Vallis Live and its successful launch in Africa and the Middle East.
Since March 2020, Natasha now divides her time between her Marine and Cargo responsibilities and the MENA (Middle East, North Africa) team, where she has taken on the role of managing and overseeing Egypt and Jordan.
