Admin Assistant (Media)
Natalie grew up on a rural property in north-east Victoria and, apart from three years at Deakin University in Geelong, has lived regionally her whole life.
Her working career began at McPherson Media’s Riverine Herald as a journalist, writing news stories, real estate and sport, as well as feature publications like the tourism magazine What’s On. The role included taking photographs, as well as sub-editing. She then moved to the Shepparton News as the chief features sub-editor before returning to the Riverine Herald as a sport and general sub-editor.
In 2016, she left the Riv to pursue a career in another form of writing – fiction. She has since written six young adult manuscripts, as well as a short film and full-length screenplay and continues to pursue this passion. In 2020, she took on the role of electoral officer for Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh.
Natalie and her husband run a merino enterprise at Bunnaloo, where they also breed and train Kelpie working dogs. Natalie believes Echuca Moama is a vibrant, exciting place to live and work and is thrilled to join C4EM as Administration Assistant (Media). She will be working on bringing our stories and project updates to our members and community and also supporting to run events. She looks forward to engaging with the community and helping the area prosper and strive for a better future.
