“My interest in injury prevention was born at an early age when my father sustained a career ending injury while working on the family farm. I was able to experience first- hand the impact an occupational injury has on the individual, family, and community.”

Natalie’s career has focused on occupational injury prevention since 2001. She has had experience working with executive leaders, middle management, and front-line workers in industries such as Automotive, Education, Healthcare, Hospitality and Manufacturing for the purpose of creating a safe and healthful work environment.

Before coming to MEMIC in 2016, Natalie founded the ergonomics department for a regional healthcare system with the goal of reducing repetitive strain injuries in the workforce. Natalie’s responsibilities included job-specific ergonomic risk assessments and she was responsible for the development of safety and risk prevention programs. As the leader of the ergonomics team, she spearheaded,
implemented, and taught material handling, office ergonomics, and patient handling programs which resulted in significant reductions in worker injuries and claims.

Natalie’s experience also includes direct patient care while working in varied clinical settings. She taught occupational health and ergonomics for the Physical Therapy program at Florida International University.

She is credentialed as a Certified Safe Patient Handling Professional (CSPHP) presenting at national and state conferences on Safe Patient Handling and Mobility. Her contributions to the field of worker safety also include presenting at the NIOSH Total Worker Health Conference.

Natalie has earned a Master’s of Public Health (MPH) from the University of New England, a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from Florida International University, and an AOS in culinary arts from the Culinary Institute of America. She holds the Workers’ Compensation Professional (WCP) designation from AMCOMP.
