  • Domestic Violence Witness Coordinator

As an East Coast transplant, Tiasha moved to Eugene in the summer of 2018 from Maryland and began working at Kids’ FIRST as the Domestic Violence Witness Coordinator in July.

Tiasha has an educational background in Public Health from the University of Maryland, College Park (go Terps!) and has previously worked at Baltimore City’s Child Advocacy Center as a Child Advocate, the National Institutes of Health as a Research Assistant and as a First Responder in Maryland. Tiasha also fiercely believes in volunteering while traveling and has taught English in Crete, Greece and worked with young hospital patients in Sri Lanka (her home country).

Although new to Oregon, Tiasha has truly enjoyed her time here surrounded by nature.
