Natalie is a 2019 graduate of Lindenwood University (St. Charles, MO), after completing her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and rounding out a successful 4-year college golf career. Originally from Alton, Illinois, the Greater St. Louis Area has always been home. Natalie grew up participating in a diverse background of sports and by the beginning of high school found her way into the game of golf and was forever hooked!
“Through the platform and game of golf, I have made life-long friends, been inspired by life changing coaches & mentors, had countless doors opened to new opportunities and I have grown & developed substantially as a person,” Natalie said. “I have first-hand experienced the ability that the game of golf has to positively impact lives. I am honored to now step into a hands-on role in seeing golf do the same for others. I am incredibly grateful and excited to be this year’s Gateway Section PGA WORKS Fellow!”
