Board Secretary

Senior Financial Analyst at Adobe. Prior to Adobe, Tashiya worked for four years as a management consultant for BERK, a Seattle public sector consulting firm, where she worked on projects that ranged from economic development to early learning education to urban planning. Before BERK, Tashiya spent two years working as an Peace Corps Volunteer in Rwanda where she taught English to 7th and 8th graders and built the first library in her rural community. Tashiya was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka and immigrated to the United States at the age of 12. Having experienced the short and long term challenges of immigrating to the United States, Tashiya wants to use her multi-faceted skills to listen and work towards empowering families to break the generational cycle of poverty. In her free time, Tashiya likes to challenge herself by going on long hikes and traveling to foreign lands.
