Natalie was born in Robinson, TX where she was blessed to grow up in a Christian home. She was taught about the Lord from childhood and at the age of seven, prayed with her parents at her bedside, admitting that she was a sinner and proclaiming her faith in Christ. Her parents continued to faithfully shepherd her faith as she grew up. Natalie moved to the Brazos Valley in 2016 to attend Texas A&M. Having completed her Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, Natalie now works as a 4th-grade teacher. 

A pastor’s kid, Natalie loves the local church, especially the clear expositional teaching of God’s Word and relationships with people in all life stages that she has found at New Life. She has served on the Welcome Team and Preschool Team, most recently as a Preschool Supervisor. Natalie’s nurturing heart fuels her passion for at-risk kids, advocating for and empowering them within the public school system. When she has free time, you can find her scoping out the best fajita, ice cream, or coffee places in town, enjoying a game night, or hanging out with her friends.
