Nastasha Everheart is the Chief Membership Officer at the Pacific Council on International Policy, where she oversees new member recruitment and member relations strategy. She leads the staff committee on inclusivity, an internal effort to promote an inclusive environment and attract a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures across everything the organization does. As part of that, she helped develop the “Balance Initiative” to become a leader in our field on gender inclusivity in membership and on panels and the “Pay it Forward” campaign to give young members more opportunities to engage in our work. She also serves as the staff liaison to the Membership Committee of the Board of Directors. She has Bachelor’s in International Studies and Spanish from the University of Idaho and a Master’s of Public Diplomacy from the Annenberg School at USC. During her time at USC, she served as the managing editor of Public Diplomacy Magazine for two years. Before coming to the Council in 2010, she lived in Ecuador for 6 months and studied human rights in Guatemala for 3. She hails from Idaho, where she (a) was the first person in her family to graduate from college; and (b) developed a (now hidden) talent for log rolling.
