Natalie was born and raised in northwest Indiana and later received her Bachelor of Science in Arts Management from Indiana University. While in college she studied almost everything under the sun: public policy, culture, economics, folklore, and traditional arts training. Natalie’s heart always drew her back to Telluride, where she visited often as a child to explore, snowboard and hike. Her childhood dream to live in southwest Colorado finally came true after college graduation. Natalie’s future endeavors are to continue practicing her art forms and to inspire those around her through creativity and passion.
