Natasha Cartagena Spencer, a resident of the Space Coast for over 17yrs has made her philanthropic efforts her utmost priority. Paying it forward is not an option, it’s a must in order to break generational cycles of educational disadvantages, homelessness, abuse.
Born in Manhattan, NY, raised in Orlando, FL and a graduate of the University of Miami, she has volunteered in every community she has been a part of from the age of 12, collecting books from neighborhoods teaching and reading to the homeless.
Natasha is Senior Vice President of Shelter Mortgage Company and serves on the board of Habitat for Humanity of Brevard (Affordable Housing), Brevard Rescue Mission (Homelessness, Women & Children), Junior Achievement (Education, Kindergarten to twelfth grade), as well as, local HBCA and State board of FHBA (Building Advocacy & Construction Trade Education/Affordable Housing).
Breaking generational cycles is at the heart that drives Natasha to succeed in business, as well as, personal philanthropic endeavors.
She is truly humbled by this opportunity and is looking forward to physical exertion it will require to fundraise and advocate to benefit children, crime prevention and the arts.
