Natalie was born in Bozeman, Montana and has been involved in Barbershop music for 18 years. She is a third - generation barbershopper sharing the love of singing and harmonizing with her grandmother, mother, and sister. At age 19, Natalie became the Assistant Director and Choreographer of the Bridger Mountain Harmony chorus, under the direction of her mom.
With her passion for youth outreach and education, Natalie was the creative force and founder of “The Adelettes,” a young women’s chorus that promoted Barbershop music to younger generations. She served on the faculty for many High School Barbershop Festivals and became the head faculty for the Big Sky Youth in Harmony Rendezvous Camp for 11 years. During that time, Natalie was also asked to serve as the Young Women in Harmony Coordinator for the Northwest Region of Sweet Adelines, along with sharing her talents as a vocal coach, and teaching education classes.
When the Bozeman Chord Rustlers (EVG) were in need of a musical leader, Natalie accepted the position as their frontline director. Over the course of six years under her leadership, she helped the chapter grow their membership and advance musically, earning their highest score and achievement of 2nd place at their Division contest.
Currently, Natalie sings with the 5-time international championship Rich-Tones chorus. She also loves performing in a quartet and tag singing.
Outside of Barbershop music, Natalie spends her time pursuing her passion for film with her Associates Degree in Motion Picture Production.
