Natalie is a D26 from Stillwater, Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2020. After graduation, Natalie worked for a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA in a rural clinic in Minnesota, contributing to building and funding their dental program. And she volunteered as a dental assistant in the Twin Cities for an evening extraction clinic. Both opportunities introduced her to dental public health and barriers to care many individuals face. She received her master’s degree from Barry University in 2022. During her free time, she enjoys hanging out with family and friends, watching movies, biking, and reading. Natalie is excited to join the Dental Central team and explore the opportunities Tufts has to offer!
