Natalie worked long-term with Youth With A Mission, an international missions organisation. She facilitated several Discipleship Training Schools and led teams around the world to serve and to help the students grow in their own personal development. She also led other teams within the organisation, finishing with leading a team responsible for getting a vessel deployed to PNG to bring medical assistance. She has a diploma in counselling and other certificates around counselling and training. Her background is diverse but her desire to be in the field of peacemaking came when staffing a peace camp in Kurdistan in 2018. Since then she has maintained a focus on peacemaking, is currently doing further study in Religion, Peace, and Conflict, and maintains involvement in the team she went to Kurdistan with, The Peace Collective. She is passionate about us as followers of Jesus knowing what is true for right relationships, and taking the risks to live that out because it is the best way to live and is how other people know God is real! She loves the ocean, meals with people, film photography, and her family.
