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.
