Natasha Guynes

Natasha Guynes is a change-maker. By telling her story of triumph over poverty, addiction, and sexual exploitation, she uses the power of authenticity and human connection to help young women across DC and Baltimore thrive in her role as founder of HER Resiliency Center (HER). This organization is dedicated to providing support and guidance to vulnerable young women as they work to become self-sufficient and independent adults. Natasha is running for City Council in Baltimore City's 10th District, where she hopes to use her skills for advocacy and problem-solving to return a sense of vibrancy and hope to the people who call it home. 

Prior to founding HER, Natasha served on Capitol Hill in the offices of Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Ben Nelson, Sen. Brian Schatz, and the Senate Commission on Long-Term Care; she later worked for Media Matters for America. Natasha received her degree in political science from Trinity-Washington University and served in AmeriCorps after graduation. She is currently an MPA candidate at the University of Baltimore. 

Natasha regularly engages in community opportunities to celebrate and support women's leadership, entrepreneurship and mentorship through public speaking, volunteerism and storytelling performances.
