Natalie is a Program Officer with AMB West Philanthropies at The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. In this role, she helped facilitate the launch of the AMB West Philanthropies happiness initiatives and continues to foster the work in this priority area.
Prior to joining AMB West Philanthropies, Natalie spent nine years working at both Mountain Sky Guest Ranch and West Creek Ranch. In recent years she enjoyed elevating services and wellness opportunities for guests and staff alike as the Director of Wellness for the ranch businesses.
Natalie graduated from Christopher Newport University, where she played field hockey and lacrosse while earning her degree in Communication Studies and minoring in Studio Art. After finishing her university studies abroad in Spain at Pablo de Olvide, she found value in travel and continued education surrounding holistic health approaches. After traveling to 30+ countries, she gained several trainings in yoga, meditation, massage therapy and beyond. Natalie reports the biggest learnings were gained from being open, empathetic, grateful, curious, and finding comfort in the uncomfortable.
In her off time, she loves spending time with family and friends and no better place to do that than in nature, preferably surrounded by Montana wildflowers!
