Professional Title/sInterim Director of the IDEAS Center
Meet Natalie! She is the interim Director of the IDEAS Center here at Allegheny College. Her journey began with the Greater Cincinnati Urban League, engaging with her community and youth has been a pure passion for her.
Over the past three years, Natalie served as a 4H Youth Educator at Central State University, which so happens to be her alma mater. Natalie received her Masters of Science from DePaul University and has had the opportunity to craft innovative programs, engaging young minds in hands-on experiences, and igniting their curiosity about the world around them. Witnessing those “a-ha” moments and watching their excitement grow was incredibly rewarding.
Natalie proudly calls Cincinnati, Ohio her home and is a devoted Bengals football fan, familiar with conquering the jungle and celebrating victory with a resounding “WHO DEY!”.
Nowadays, Natalie and her fiancé call Erie home. They relish trips to the beach, kayaking, and the peaceful pace of small-town life. As avid travelers and food enthusiasts, they delight in discovering delicious cuisine and embarking on new adventures.
