Natalie immediately fell in love with luge the first time she tried it at a summer camp when she lived in Calgary. She has had a steady development in the program, working her way through the novice program in Calgary for two years before moving to Whistler, B.C. where she competed on the B.C. provincial team for two additional years. She made the Junior National Team in 2018-19 where she introduced herself to the world by finishing first overall in both doubles and singles in Youth World Cup racing.

Natalie and her doubles partner and friend, Caitlin Nash, made history in 2019 on their home track in Whistler, becoming the first women ever to compete in a World Cup race against the men. They were back making headlines a few weeks later when they teamed up to win the silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games in St. Moritz, SUI. 

Fully bilingual, Natalie has lived throughout the world with her family: Vancouver, Saratoga Springs, NY, Grenoble, France, Calgary and Whistler. She makes the world’s best Caesar salad and has a black and white dog named Danny. Natalie enjoys travelling, skiing and sailing. She is in Grade 11 at Whistler Secondary School.
