Novice Women's Assistant Coach
Natalie was born and raised in Colorado and made her way out to California to attend college. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Microbiology and it was at UCSB that Natalie found her passion for rowing. On the women’s team, Natalie was a coxswain for four years where she received three consecutive national championship gold medals at ACRA with her crews. She was also a recipient of the 2019 ACRA All-American First Team award.
Natalie was brought to the Bay Area by her other job as a laboratory technician on the regent development team at GenapSys in Redwood City. There she and her team are working to make genetic sequencing more affordable with a novel platform that uses electric semiconductor-chip-based detection.
When Natalie is not at the lab or on the water, she loves to explore her new home here in the Bay Area.
