Dallas and Northeast Texas Representative
Natalie grew up in Oklahoma, but she is happy to consider Texas "home" as well. Natalie graduated from Oklahoma Christian in 2014 with degrees in Family Studies and Vocational Ministry. With Natalie's previous work in the Admission's office as a student coupled with her love of everything OC, recruiting future students for the University truly seems to be a job made for her. Natalie enjoys traveling, going to concerts, and baking. You can usually find her with a large drink from Sonic in hand.
