Natalie graduated with a bachelor’s in New Media Communications from Oregon State University, with a focus in Film Studies & Production. In an effort to avoid the life of a starving artist, she found a way to transfer her abilities of creativity, vision, directing people, managing projects, and technical skills into a professional path. Natalie has 10+ years of marketing, sales, and event planning experience. At SecureWorld she enjoys building connections between Information Security heroes and utilizing creativity daily to develop successful conferences. In her free time, Natalie enjoys listening to records, attending concerts, being in nature, traveling, keeping active, and watching indie flicks.
