Personal

Natalie grew up in an unstable home and, during her teen years, struggled unsuccessfully to avoid following in the footsteps of others in her family who had made unhealthy choices. At the age of 22, an unexpected event became a much needed and defining turning point in her life. Natalie gave her life over to Christ, and began allowing Him to lead her in all of her endeavors. Eventually, God placed it on Natalie's heart to pursue and utilize her education as a way to help others, including children, adolescents, and young adults, who find themselves in similar situations as her own.

Vision

Natalie has a strong desire to spread love and help to all who are lost, confused, or in need. As a follower of Christ, her calling is to walk alongside the broken and broken-hearted, providing support, encouragement, and a non-judgmental, listening ear. Natalie understands that people, and especially children and adolescents, can benefit from positive role models: people to look up to, to trust, and most importantly, persons who can offer them hope. Natalie believes that our current situations do not determine our future, and that there is always possibility for change.
