She’s a graduate of The John Cooper School and an alumna of The University of Texas at Austin. Natalie is a proud Longhorn and honorary LSU Tigers fan -- Hook 'em Horns and Geaux Tigers!
Her family’s nomadic lifestyle has also given Natalie the opportunity to travel to countries across the world. She dreams to one day step foot on all seven continents, including Antarctica! When she’s not working or traveling, Natalie enjoys perusing for new restaurants and cuisines, listening to live music, dancing, karaokeing, shopping, playing volleyball, binge-watching TV shows, and trying to be artsy.
Natalie has served as co-President of the Asian American Journalists Association's Texas Chapter since 2018 and is a member of the Texas Exes Houston Chapter.
