Natalie lives in South Dakota with her husband and two awesome kids. Natalie earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of South Dakota, along with many English Literature credits. She later earned an MBA from Maryville University in St. Louis MO, and has worked across the Midwest in the corporate finance and audit arenas for Fortune 500 companies. When she became a mom, Natalie retired from the corporate life and never looked back. She has now homeschooled for over 10 years with Christian, classical and literature-based paradigms, including teaching for and leading faith-based homeschool groups locally. She speaks locally on all things classical ed, and loves sharing the classical model and the hope and joy of homeschooling your own children with the next generation of homeschool mamas! Natalie enjoys speaking and teaching and thinking, as well as reading and writing and dreaming. She finds particular satisfaction in working with tweens and teens and moms to inspire them towards the good, true and beautiful, and walking besides them as they learn to equip themselves to fulfill their callings in this world.
