Natalie has been involved with the Finger Lakes Museum since its inception in 2008. Having grown up in the Finger Lakes region, she has always had an intrinsic motivation to bring to life a destination that can celebrate the countless places and stories that make this region one she still chooses to call her home. She earned her MS degree, with a focus on nonprofit leadership, from Keuka College, and her BA degree in history from St. John Fisher College. Prior to joining the FLM, she held numerous leadership positions at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion in Canandaigua, NY, including historical curator. She brings over 15 years of experience working in the nonprofit and tourism industries. Natalie and her husband, Alex, live between three of their favorite Finger Lakes (Canandaigua, Seneca and Keuka) with their two sons, Roland and Huxley, and two English Springer Spaniels, Noma and Tali. Natalie is passionate about the great outdoors, traveling (wherever dogs are allowed), cooking, gardening, reading, and, of course, everything Finger Lakes!
