Redskins.com recently caught up with veteran First Lady Tasha, who outside of cheering works in insurance and loves spending time with her family.

Redskins.com: What is your career outside of Washington Redskins Cheerleader?

Tasha: "Outside of WRC I work at The Kennedy Center as a Development Systems Coordinator, and I am also the Founder/CEO of a non-profit dance and mentoring program for girls called P.O.M. Squad. I am also a graduate student at George Mason University studying Non-Profit Management."

Redskins.com: How do you manage your time among WRC, your career and free time?

Tasha: "Managing my time is something that I struggle with daily. On the days that I am relatively good at it, I usually have a to-do list that I check off. I have tons of notebooks for different things, agendas and post-its everywhere. I have to remember that 'free time' is actually a thing and to take advantage of times that I can rest and enjoy family and friends. Sometimes I work way too hard, but I know that my efforts will soon pay off."

Redskins.com: If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? Why?

Tasha: "I honestly wouldn't want to travel back to a certain year, because I feel that life only gets better and we improve with time. However, if I absolutely had to pick, I'd have to say the year that I met my husband (2012). Neither of us would have thought we'd be married today and because of that, we appreciate our union even more."

Redskins.com: What is one thing you would say you could not live without? Why?

Tasha: "I can't live without my family. They are my backbone and my biggest support system. I know that I can always rely on my family to show me love and be a lifeline in times of need."

Redskins.com: What is one thing you hope to accomplish within the next five years?

Tasha: "Within the next five years I hope to be recognized as a successful business woman with a thriving company. By this time, I would have quit my 'day job' to focus solely on running my organization. I also hope to have my first child within the next three to five years."
