Natalie joined the Legacy team in July 2018. She was previously living and working as an office manager in the Portland Metro area before her family decided to make the move down south to Salem. Natalie graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelors in Interior Design and Housing Studies. Go Beavs! Upon graduation she worked as both an office manager and an assistant property manager so joining Legacy as an administrative assistant felt like a natural step in her career.
In her spare time she enjoys exploring Salem with her husband and walking the trails of Minto-Brown Park with her two dogs. They are a family that loves to visit new places and they dream of many more trips abroad. When she isn’t out exploring Natalie enjoys watching shows like Parks & Rec, Real Housewives of any city, historical dramas, and all of the baking competitions. She also enjoys reading, petting dogs, crafting, a glass of wine, and spending time with her nieces and nephew.
Natalie and her husband met while volunteering for a nonprofit in Portland called Sparks of Hope. Their mission is to help empower children who have experienced abuse and mentor them during their healing journey. Through this program they connected with a community called Bridge Meadows where they mentor and assist in any way they can. Bridge Meadows is a generational community that provides a safe, stable home, and support for youth in foster care, adoptive parents, and elders. Natalie and her husband continue to volunteer their time with these organizations but are looking forward to finding more opportunities to give back in the Salem Area.
