Natasha Florez, a UNF Department of Public Health graduate from Orlando, FL, has shown great dedication working with the community in Jacksonville through a variety of service projects including Make-A-Wish Foundation, American Red Cross, and Feeding Northeast Florida.  Natasha’s most current community involvement is with Brooks Clubhouse where she helps assist individuals who have acquired a traumatic brain injury to be able to regain social, physical, cognitive, and vocational abilities.  Natasha recognizes that her years at UNF have provided the knowledge and skills to go on professionally, but equally as important, the ability to better herself mentally in order to make a difference and achieve greater satisfaction in her own life and the lives of those she is able to help.
