This week my guest is Natasha Thomas.

Natasha Thomas is a graduate of the University of North Dakota (Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy, 2008) and Board Certified Music Therapist, serving individuals statewide through North Dakota Vision Services/School for the Blind (NDVS/SB) and ND School for the Deaf, in addition to private clients she sees in the home and in settings like LISTEN Day Services and the LISTEN Drop-In Center.  As part of her work with NDVS/SB, Natasha is a regular transcriber of the Braille Music code, and also signs in ASL for her work with the ND School for the Deaf.  Natasha is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Special Education (UND, 2012) to supplement her work with these populations.  She is a member of the American Music Therapy Association and regularly attends their annual conferences.  Natasha enjoys connecting with other Music Therapists (her twitter handle is @MusicMovesND) educating her community on Music Therapy through her newspaper affiliated blog, http://musicmoves.areavoices.com, supervising UND practica students, and teaching/performing Middle Eastern Dance in her spare time (when she has it!)
