Natalie grew up in Massachusetts, where she spent many summers exploring the beaches of Cape Cod and Maine. It wasn’t until her post-college years that she discovered her passion for hiking and camping, uncovering the natural beauty of national parks just a few years ago. She is now eager to explore the outdoors as much as she can in her free time.
Natalie earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature with a minor in Creative Writing from the University of Maryland in 2019. Her professional journey began as a Paralegal after graduation, where she honed valuable writing and problem-solving skills. Realizing that the legal field wasn’t her calling, she eagerly set out to take the next steps in her career elsewhere.
Now, as the Communications Coordinator for the National Park Trust, Natalie channels her creativity and expertise into crafting compelling and informative content. Her digital storytelling skills are pivotal in spreading the organization’s message. She is also involved in the planning and organization of Kids to Parks Day, the ParkPassport App, and grant management-related activities.
