Natasha Falke is a Project Manager at BanyanGlobal and holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certificate. She supports two partners and manages various client projects throughout the firm.
Before coming to Banyan, Natasha spent 16 years in public service for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in a variety of positions serving the University of Massachusetts, Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. Throughout her state government career, Natasha focused on strategy, policy decisions, and development, including managing the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Strategic Plan for Cyber Crime between 2008 and 2014. As the Program Coordinator for the Massachusetts Strategic Plan for Cyber Crime, one of her many responsibilities was to bring members of law enforcement together and create ways to enhance communication and networking capabilities within the community while providing opportunities for law enforcement to learn new ways to better investigate crimes with digital evidence. One way this was accomplished was through organizing and managing three annual multi-day national law enforcement conferences focused on cyber crime investigations. In addition to the conferences, Natasha helped bring together the conference attendees who were considered stakeholders to attend a “State of the States” workgroup to discuss state and national cyber crime issues. Before joining the Cyber Crime Division, Natasha worked closely with Attorney General Martha Coakley as her Executive Assistant, where she managed the Attorney General’s schedule, speaking engagements, and policy decisions, as well as assisting with the administration transition in 2007.
Prior to the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, Natasha was an Executive Assistant at the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office serving the District Attorney and the First Assistant District Attorney where she managed the District Attorney’s schedule as well as assisting on felony criminal cases. Prior to this position, Natasha was the paralegal assigned to one of the largest felony criminal cases in Massachusetts history which resulted in a guilty verdict.
Natasha received her Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Northeastern University where she also provided talks to the NU Co-Op informational sessions to incoming freshmen, and was selected as one of the five senior students to be featured in NUCJ marketing material to prospective freshman. Natasha also was recognized by Northeastern in 2007 for her dedication to public service. Natasha owes her success to her mother and to her mentors.
Natasha lives on Cape Cod with her husband Tom and their dogs Daisy and Bella, and enjoys many hobbies including cooking, photography, boating, and stand-up paddle boarding.
