Tasha is from the Pacific Northwest and is the mother of three remarkable sons. In 2004 Tasha was scouted to model for a Seattle modeling agency, which launched her into the beauty industry, booking with clients such as Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Clinton Kelly.
In 2007 she was selected to judge a state pageant which sparked a curiosity about the pageant industry, leading to her very first pageant competition, Miss Plus America in 2008. She did not win the first year, nor second, but third time was a charm in 2010 - she won her first title and was crowned the 8th Miss Plus America.
This began a whirlwind of life changing and humbling opportunities that involved fashion and pageant productions, coaching, judging, TV appearances, media interviews, magazine features and more. Tasha gained the credibility to create and pursue pathways for women to be their best selves.
She has been called upon to inspirationally speak, is a highly sought-after pageant judge, emcee and consultant within the beauty and fashion industries. She has made history as the first Black recipient of a Global Beauty Award (The “Oscars” of Pageantry) and was the first Washingtonian to win a major national pageant title since 1986. Most recently, she was the first to win a world title with the 25-year-old Mrs. Globe organization from Washington state and became the first Black woman to win the world title of Mrs. Curve’ Globe in November 2020. The title of Mrs. Curve’ Globe afforded her both in-person and virtual appearances in the British Virgin Islands, Kenya, Russia and Bolivia.
Tasha stepped away from the spotlight for three years to begin her personal journey to healing from the traumas of her childhood and adult mistakes. She is now mental health first aid certified. After reaching the crescendo of her healing – she published her first book, “Choose you, Change your path, Walk in your Purpose.” Her hope is that after reading this book it will inspire courage in others to begin their healing journey too! Most recently she launched the self-produced Tasha Haskins Show – The space for Influencers, Celebrities, Industry Specialists, Athletes, Business Owners or Entrepreneurs to share their stores and call to action for others to heal. Her show discusses the silent topics that truly hit home pertaining to Mental Health, inner-Success and Purpose!
