Born and raised in Sacramento, the state’s hub for policy, Natalie first became engaged in public
service as a member on the Advisory Council to Sacramento City Unified School District’s
Board of Education. Since moving to Los Angeles, she has continued to be active in local
politics and public service, recently completing an internship with the Los Angeles County

communities within Los Angeles.
