Natasha Doucas President

Natasha was Interim Squash BC President in February 2018, stepping in to fill the position when the previous President stepped down to take the position of Executive Director in the Squash BC Office.

Before this, Natasha had been Director of Marketing and Communications for 2 ½ years.

Natasha’s love of the game started at an early age, competing nationally as a junior. She played on the Quebec Provincial team just before taking a break from Squash to complete her studies in Education at francophone Universities.

When Natasha returned to squash in 2001, she quickly became very passionate about the game of Doubles and soon competed in Montreal and Toronto. She brought this passion with her when she relocated to Vancouver in 2006 and has been heavily involved in the community since. Natasha served as the Doubles Committee Chair (2012-2018) and is a member of the Jesters Club.

Professionally, Natasha has used her business and education degrees to drive solutions in process management in the areas of Government, Healthcare and Legal.
