Having honed her communications skills in the non-profit arts world, Natalie has built relationships with wide-ranging stakeholders and managed communications, member relations, program development, and evaluation for numerous arts organizations.

Natalie served as Communications Coordinator, and later Program Associate, for Ontario Presents, a service organization that supports touring performing arts across the province.
