Born in Newport, Natasha is the first woman of colour elected to the Senedd as the regional member for South East Wales. Hailing from a media background consisting of television, radio and print, she has worked as a Banker and in what was previously the National Assembly for Wales. Natasha has stood for a number of elections prior to the Senedd election of 2021. She stood for Newport East twice in general elections.

Natasha has been named the Welsh Conservative’s Shadow Minister for Transport and technology and is working passionately to see the creation an all Wales travel card similar to the Oyster card in London. She hopes it will allow everyone in Wales, as well as tourists to travel on public transport all over Wales, with transparent and affordable fares on a better public transport network and hopes it will provide a well needed boost to the Welsh economy.

She has always been passionate about making a difference and strongly believes one should ‘not just talk the talk, but they should walk the walk too.’

Natasha holds a BA in Politics and Social Policy alongside a Masters in Contemporary British Policy and media from the University of London.
