She has covered major hurricanes along the Gulf Coast, moderated gubernatorial debates and interviewed political figures and Hollywood stars from around the world. She has been recognized with numerous awards for her feature, medical and investigative reporting.

Natalie started her career as a photographer and editor while attending the school of Journalism at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. With a degree in Broadcasting and minors in history, political science and psychology, she decided to become a producer which eventually led to jobs reporting and anchoring. In her words, “there is no greater compliment than to entrust a reporter with your story. It can be personal and sometimes difficult. I’ve learned about journalism from both sides of the camera as the subject of stories and the reporter. I choose my words very carefully and I treat every story with the respect it deserves.” It is that sincere yet no-nonsense and honest approach that has won the hearts of many and gained the trust of viewers.

Natalie spends a great deal of time in the community, volunteering and speaking to charitable groups. Outside journalism, her passion is working with kids. She founded a committee that proposed and developed a new elementary magnet school in Colorado with a focus on critical thinking and responsible citizenship.

Natalie and her husband, Tyler, have an active home with two elementary-aged daughters and a baby boy.
