Natalie was born and raised in the Southern US, calling the Winston Salem, NC area her home.
She joined Percona in March 2013 with 8+ years of executive administrative support and data analytics experience in multinational companies. She also speaks conversational Spanish and Italian. She has a Masters of Business Administration and a recently earned PHR Certification (Professional in Human Resources) from the Human Resources Certification Institute.
People - and all of their interesting, diverse traits - are her motivation and inspiration. A shift to Human Resources is thus a natural fit.
She can often be found at local coffee shops reading a good book, or at the movie theater catching the latest blockbuster.
