The Northwest Experience

After witnessing the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy on the Atlantic coast in 2012, Natalie became interested in emergency and disaster management. It wasn't until attending Northwest that Natalie discovered the role that emergency managers also can play in the protection of cultural heritage, particularly in museums.

Natalie was heavily involved at Northwest in self-led research projects and even presented a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan for a public library. She is currently pursuing a master's degree in museum collections management at The George Washington University. She credits her success and accomplishments to Dr. John Carr, an instructor of emergency and disaster management.

The hands-on opportunities and experiences Natalie gained at Northwest make her career ready, day one.
