community profile: natasha patel

We’re so pleased to introduce you to another member of our massively cool community of Bacana clients. Welcome to Natasha Patel!

Introduce yourself.
I’m a career counselor, writer and teacher. Call it polymath or renaissance soul. But I thrive when I’m pushing more than one idea forward to execution.

What’s something making you happy right now?
Season 2 of UnReal, my 6 year-old niece, really balanced bourbon cocktails.

When was the last time you surprised yourself?
When someone (not a client) asked for advice, and I didn’t answer with what I really thought.

What’s something that brings ease into your life?
With my schedule, a simple evening at home with a movie.

What’s something you’ve seen or read recently that you want to share?
Attempting to conquer Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. It’s the 20th anniversary of the publication.

Anything else you’d like to share with the Bacana community?
I’m working with a new theater company in Atlanta that is focused on playwrights and production, called Onion Man Productions.

Where can people find you?
You can follow me on twitter at laRenSoul, or my website for career counseling is
