TWU Student Leader Profile


Natashia Williams, EMBA student from the Houston campus was the event chairperson for the recent TWU EMBA (Executive Masters in Business Administration) fundraising gala.  Each year as a part of the capstone project, one group is responsible for planning and presenting an event to raise funds for the EMBA scholarship fund.  This year, 2013, was special in that the event was to honor the retiring chair of the TWU School of Management, Dr. Paula Ann Hughes, who is herself a TWU alumna.

Natashia, who has her own wedding/event planning business, Treasured Events  outside of her full time professional position, wanted to chair the TWU gala because she knew that because of her experience, she could bring something new and exciting to TWU.  ” Having a group of people together to take on a daunting task exhilarated me and pushed me to my maximum and showed everyone that Team Work really does work.  Most importantly being able to honor such a great woman and superb role model such as Dr. Hughes, catapulted us to excel even more.  And of course, who would not want to be known as the trailblazing team that had an awesome Gala in Houston.”  The gala was themed around the Great Gatsby era and many dressed for the occasion.


Natashia enrolled at TWU in the MBA program upon the recommendation of a friend and has been very happy with her decision.  She completed the program in May of 2013.  “The most valuable part of the program has to be the networking and the invaluable friendships that have been forged.  Having professors that truly care about their students’ success is something that will never be forgotten.”

An only child, Natashia is the single mother of two teenage girls, Emerald, 17, and Diamond, 15 and a “feisty” Chihuahua, Onyx.  She has about 16 years of experience in the Healthcare industry.  Recently, she has transitioned to the Dallas area to work and has enrolled at the TWU campus there to pursue a second Master’s degree in the Health System program.  TWUBA wishes her all the best as she goes for her second TWU degree!
