Early Life[edit]

Greene is a California native though has resided in Chicago, IL, and Colfax, LA and currently occupies Texas. She predominantly was raised in Fresno, CA with her mother (Brendel Jackson), stepfather (Robert Jackson), and her three siblings: her biological sister Brenekie and two step siblings Samone and Rodney. Before her mother remarried, she lived in Louisiana with her mother and father James Greene Jr. [1]


Greene went to elementary school in Fresno, CA at Aynesworth Elementary School. Due to her diligent studies, she was granted the opportunity to skip two grades at the young age of 9; however, her mother declined the offer as she believed her daughter was moving too quickly in a new environment. As a result, this propelled her relationship with her 5th grade teacher Dr. Luz Gonzalez and took on the role of class helper and tutor for her peers.

Following elementary school, she attended Computech Middle School in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program. In high school at Edison High School, she took on Scholastics AP (Advanced Program) and college-level courses in Math, Science, and English. From this good-fortune, Natasha was able to excel socially and become involved in extracurriculars such as debate, forensics, basketball, and track and field.

On her debate and forensics team, she played a crucial role in guiding her team to first place in the National Forensics competition in Los Angeles, CA two years in a row.

Aside from her outstanding work ethic, she was an exceptional athlete. She played basketball at a varsity level for both basketball and track and field setting various San Juaquin Valley records in the 100m and 200m dash. In addition, she was voted most valuable player (MVP) for two out of four high school years in basketball and three out of four years in track and field. Moreover, her superb athleticism allowed her to participate in the Junior Olympics to compete against the well known Marion Jones, the first woman to win five track and field medals at a single Olympics in 2000.  

Because of her backbreaking accomplishments in high school, her classmates voted her Student-Athlete of the Year for the Central Valley of California and was awarded the Key to the City. Furthermore, the city of Fresno made April 28th Natasha A. Greene date under Mayor Karen Humphrey, the first elected woman mayor of Fresno. Without a doubt, Greene graduated high school with high honors.

Proceeding high school, despite her many college offers and acceptance letters, she attended Grambling State University in Grambling, LA keeping the family legacy of attending a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). At Grambling State University, she majored in Physics on scholarship, and was student assistant to Dr. Thomas Odom, Dean of Physics.

After graduating Grambling State University in 1997 as Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Physics, she continued her educational endeavors at Howard University in Washington, DC. At Howard University, she pursued Masters in Science degree with a major in Physics.

With the advice from the late Dr. Arthur Thorpe and Dr. Vernon Morris (her academic advisors), she went on to obtain a doctoral degree in Physics. Coincidentally, Howard University was implementing a new program as a quasiPhysics degree referred to as HU Program in Atmospheric Sciences (HUPAS). Natasha was a pioneer as one of the first members of the graduating class from this program that provided the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree in Atmospheric Sciences with an emphasis on Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry.


During her college years, she attended two summer internships at University of Central Florida and Center of Electro Optics and Lasers. Here she developed thermal windows for supersonic aircraft jets. Additionally, she attend Stanford University and worked in a lab analyzing the Ozone's (O3) sensitivity in the stratosphere.


At Howard University, Greene worked on a thesis project entitled ""Use of the Electrostatic Classification Method to size SRM Particles (0.1 micron particles) in the Presence of a Hurricane.” Her work here was revolutionary for it was the first of its kind to be completed in the presence of a major hurricane, Hurricane Erika of 1997 (Category III). Her research was funded by NASA grants and went on to be cited in 50 subsequent publications on this topic. From this, Greene was able to work at the NASA Greenbelt facility of Greenbelt, MD.  

While obtaining her doctoral degree at Howard University's Program in Atmospheric Sciences (HUPAS), she wrote her dissertation, "Examination of Particulate Matter and Heavy Metals and Their Effects in At-Risk Wards in Washington, DC.” Greene's work here was designed and created an environmental health exposure assessment for particulate matter and heavy metals (i.e. chromium, lead, cadmium, arsenic, and nickel) in four observed and poor sectors of Washington, DC. The findings from her research concluded a link between anthropogenic sources and pediatric asthma risks. Again, her work was cited in 60 articles and has been a topic of discussion worldwide at Public Health Risk conferences.
