Natalie started at VCA in October 1999 as a receptionist. She attended Animal Arts Academy of Pet Grooming and graduated as a Certified Professional Groomer in August 2002. After grooming for a couple of years, Natalie decided to go back to being a receptionist, where she remained until leaving in February 2008. She rejoined the VCA team in November 2010 as a groomer again. Natalie resides in Westfield with her husband, two cats and one dog. She enjoys spending time with her family, and being outdoors. She likes camping, canoeing and boating when the weather permits.
