Natasha Hardy – Marketing Manager

 

Meet Natasha, a woman passionate about getting the Nurture message out to as many potential donors and recipients as possible. Natasha is dedicated to finding new and exciting ways to reach people who would benefit from the incredible legacy Nurture is building

 

What was your day job before you joined Nurture?

Before joining Nurture, I worked full time in corporate for ten years following which I’ve run marketing workshops, seminars and freelance projects with over 200 different companies, big and small.  

 

What excites you most about joining the Nurture team?

I am incredibly excited to be working with a company that makes miracles happen for people.  It’s so rare to be able to work with something that will leave such a rich legacy, one that will literally live on for generations to come.

What are you hoping to accomplish in your ‘First 100 Days’?

Wow, where to begin!

I’m hoping to let hundreds of new people know about the amazing opportunity they have to make such an incredible difference to families so that more people can dive into the crazy, beautiful experience of being parents.

What does a typical morning in your household look like?

It generally starts with a dawn run for me, followed by a mad scramble to get everyone ready for school and work.

 

What does the word “family” mean to you?

Family is the people you hide in when life is mean.  The people you party with when life is kind, and the people who share all those tiny little every day joys that make life beautiful.

If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question – what would you ask?

Why each person walks a particular journey in life.

 

What is your proudest achievement?

I was given the opportunity to be part of an interview with the late Nelson Mandela, which wasn’t really an achievement of mine, but probably the most amazing professional opportunity I’ve ever had.

 

What is the best piece of advice that you have ever received?

It will all be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, it means it’s not the end.

What is in your ideal picnic basket?

Crisp, cold watermelon, a crunchy loaf of bread oozing with layers of olives, artichokes, peppers, cheese, and humus.  A bottle of my favourite red wine, dark chocolate dipped oranges.

 

What do you do when you’re not at work?

When I’m not at work, you’ll probably find me on the side of a sports field, trying to keep up with my very busy husband and two little boys (they don’t call them the Hardy boys for nothing!) Otherwise I’m running, kayaking, horse riding, hiking, playing drums or writing books.

 

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

A tricky question so I’m going to cheat and give two answers.  

Elon Musk – I’d just love to listen in on some of the conversations he must have.

My kid’s teachers – but I wouldn’t want my kids to know it’s me.
