Born and raised in Northwest Indiana, Natalie moved back to the Rust Belt after studying Economics, Business, and Spanish at New York University. As part of the Venture for America program, she spent a year after graduation at a financial technology startup in Charlotte, North Carolina, working with private equity firms and investment banks in the mergers and acquisitions space.
In the past, Natalie has worked at a mobile app development startup in New York, spent time as an analyst for a UK emerging tech consulting firm, and did direct marketing for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She hopes she can channel her obsession with education, emerging tech, and the coding bootcamp industry to better the lives of the students at Tech Elevator.
In her free time, Natalie enjoys fawning over classical music, exploring Cleveland, going on road trips, and frequenting Mitchell's Ice Cream.
