Natalie grew up and has lived in Frankston for 26 years. From a young age she always knew she wanted to work in the health profession, and after graduating from Frankston High school in 2007, she studied for 4 years at Monash University where she completed a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy. Over this time, she also took an interest in community volunteer work, including assisting in a community physiotherapy exercise group for young babies, as well as being a member of a falls prevention program aimed at reducing the risk of falls in older patients throughout their hospital stay.
In 2015, she joined the Active One team in an administration role, where she continues to use her skills from her studies and volunteer work to contribute to the allied health profession. Natalie now supervises the day to day operations in the Active One office. In her spare time, she enjoys getting outdoors, including participating in ‘fun runs’, bike riding with her partner Luke, and skiing at falls creek during the snow season.
