Natalie has always been a chaser of dreams, like most little girls Natalie loved playing make believe and wanted to do that for a career. This quickly became a reality when she first walked the catwalk at the cute age of 5. Then at 13 she was signed to leading Melbourne agency Chadwick Models.
Natalie’s success in the competitive Melbourne modelling industry really took off once she completed high school. Having been a favourite on the catwalk in Melbourne Fashion Week, starring in TV commercials for well-known Britz 4WD, Hush Puppies, Renault and more. Natalie has featured in editorial spreads and large advertising campaigns for Jason Grech and Windsor Smith just to name a few. She has worked closely with Collette Dinnigan and Dita Von Teese on their lingerie collections, this being a major highlight for her.
Natalie’s very diverse nature and love of new experiences led her to transition to TV Hosting. Her first job was in 2008/2009 co-hosting the on course television for the Moonee Valley Night Racing season with Ralph Horowitz. As her confidence grew so did the opportunities, with Natalie hosting her first live event, The Rikki Lee Style event in 2012 at Northland Shopping Centre. The interaction and natural connection Natalie feels with an audience is what she loves about hosting live events.
In 2013, an opportunity came up for Natalie to appear on the first season of The Bachelor Australia, competing for the heart of Tim Robards. Natalie was featured on 9 episodes on The Bachelor and enjoyed the experience, but hit a rough period in her life when online trolls targeted her. Natalie started speaking out about online behaviour and the need to be respectful of one another. That voice and strength led to Natalie becoming an ambassador for Bully Zero Australia, speaking to hundreds of school children about her experiences, how to deal with being bullied and the affects that bullying can have on people. Natalie enjoys empowering others, quickly leading her charity circle to grow; she became an ambassador for Melbourne Period Project who provide care, support and sanitary products for homeless women.
Like many other big named stars Natalie shares a love for the environment and all animals, putting herself out there she got in touch with Palm Oil Investigations eventually becoming a board member for the organisation and remained there until late 2017. While no longer on the board, Natalie is still passionate about palm oil and the issues associated with it and continues to work closely with POI.
Feeling it was time to spread her wings, in 2017 Natalie relocated to Los Angeles. Sady Says, which began being filmed in Natalie’s Melbourne living room, was picked up by Focus TV and two new talk shows were born – Sassy & Single and Pathways.
