Natalie was born and raised on Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada. She found her way to Colorado in 2015 and has been working in the animal care field since 2017. She has a lifelong love of pets and has nearly never been without at least a couple of furry friends in her home. Currently, Natalie and her husband are owned by five cats and two dogs; she has also been privileged in the past to care for rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, and rats. In her spare time Natalie can frequently be found crocheting or "attempting" to teach her dogs new tricks.
