Natalie started training at the age of six with vocal performance coach Monique Creber. At her first lesson, she was so shy that she burst into tears when asked to sing. She has come a long way since then and is now an accomplished vocalist who is comfortable in a wide range of styles including pop, rock, jazz, R&B and country. Her voice can be heard on a number of studio albums, as well as on a series of audio books produced by MeySen Academy in Japan. She picked up the guitar along the way and that inspired her to start writing songs.
Natalie has also accumulated considerable experience in the theater. Highlights include her portrayal of "Sandy" in Grease, the obnoxious stepsister "Joy" in Cinderella, "Jafar" in Aladdin, "Louisa" in The Sound of Music, "March Hare" in Alice in Wonderland and "Juror #8" in 12 Angry Men. In Los Angeles, she recently played the lead role of "Ralph" in an all-girl version of the classic survival tale, Lord of The Flies.
As a dancer Natalie has studied jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary and hip-hop. She has also been a competitive athlete and enjoys volleyball, skiing, skating, hockey, badminton, tennis, basketball, running, cycling, jet skiing, paddle boarding, wake-boarding, wake-surfing and her new favorites, rock climbing and bouldering.
Natalie has done acting training with Leslie Kahn and Anthony Meindl in LA, plus Biz Studio, Impact Studio and The Actor's Foundry in Vancouver. She attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, pursuing her BA in Theatre Arts with a minor in Business.
