About

Natalie

Natalie is pursuing a Sociology degree at Stanford. More specifically, she studies motivation, empathy, and group harmony in order to push for multilateral organization against the pressing environmental challenges of our time. Her interest in the interconnectedness of human and planetary health has led her to 1,500+ hours of volunteer experience in the food justice space -- from fundraising for community gardens, to researching food policy with The Farmlink Project, to picking coffee at a sustainable farm in Costa Rica. Born and raised in a small coastal town in Sonoma County, Natalie developed an appreciation for the outdoors at a young age and feels happiest when hiking or camping. As a mentor, she specializes in English, Spanish, and creative projects, and strives to make her students feel heard, seen, and supported even beyond their academic pursuits.
