Natalie is originally from Minnesota but has called Kansas home since 2014. Her husband Alex is a Kansas native and they’re thrilled to be in Wichita! She doesn’t miss the Minnesota winters!
A former Miss Minnesota, Natalie competed at the 2012 Miss America competition and used her position to advocate for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities. She received numerous community service awards for her dedication to this cause, inspired by her younger brother Trevor. Natalie also won the talent award at Miss Minnesota for her operatic vocal performance.
Natalie’s experience as Miss Minnesota led to a significant change in her career path. After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in chemistry from St. Olaf College, Natalie reevaluated her passions and decided to go into broadcast. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Mass Communications from St. Cloud State University and has loved every second of her time in the news industry since!
Outside of work, Natalie is a shameless dog mom who loves spending time with her husband, family, and golden retriever Barrington. She enjoys being physically active at the gym or in the yoga studio and singing any chance she gets. She’s sung the national anthem for the Minnesota Vikings, Sporting KC, and other local teams.
