About Natasha

Now into her 90’s, Natasha Josefowitz, Ph.D., has lived a full life. Some might argue she has lived enough for several lives.

To say that she has been a trailblazer would be an understatement.

In 1980, Natasha wrote Paths to Power: A Woman’s Guide from First Job to Top Executive (Addison Wesley 1980), which quickly became a bestselling guide for women in the workplace. Natasha taught the first college course in the country on women in management. In the mid-eighties, she became one of the first female members of Rotary International in California.

Natasha has hosted her own television segment, appeared regularly on NPR, wrote her own nationally syndicated column, and appeared on Larry King Show, Sally Jesse Raphael, and Dr. Ruth, to name a few.

While Natasha has written several other bestselling books, her passion is poetry.

Now, at 90 years young, having lost her brother, her son, her husband, and most recently her son-in-law, it is Natasha’s strength, her passion for living life, and candor that is truly infectious. Living Without the One You Cannot Live Without (November 2013), is perhaps the most telling book ever written about pre and post grief. It is a collection of powerful, gritty, candid, and inspiring poems about living life after loss. It was recently named to Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2013.

In 2015 she was inducted into the San Diego County Women’s Hall of Fame and was the Honoree at the University of California, San Diego Women’s Conference.
