Primary office:


Natasha LaGrega (she/her/hers) grew up in Leawood, Kansas, and is currently a sophomore at KU pursuing a BA in microbiology and a minor in psychology while on the pre-med track. Natasha works in Dr. Brian Ackley’s undergraduate research lab studying neuronal development. Natasha is currently involved in KU’s Red Cross Club and Pre-Medical Society. Outside of class, Natasha loves to dance and work out at the recreation center. She also volunteers at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and is an “on-call” Disney princess for KC’s Dream Factory where she dresses up as Princess Belle and helps reveal dreams to chronically or terminally ill children. On breaks from school, Natasha can be found working as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at a nursing home where she pursues her passion of helping people.

Ask me about: the pre-med track, undergraduate research, and how to balance school and other activities.
