Natalie has been on the Kicking Horse River for 2 years, and has been raft guiding for the past 8 years. Growing up in the Yukon, Natalie learned to raft while fighting off moose and grizzlies with her bare hands (her claim, we have yet to verify) and has led 10 day rafting expeditions on the Tatshenshini and Alsek rivers. She has raft guided in New Zealand and is a River Instructor for the NOLS outdoor leadership school.

In her spare time, she enjoys kayaking, snowboarding, strumming her ukulele and picking wild flowers. She is most excited about sharing her love of whitewater with you!
