Before meeting Natalie, I was excelling in my technical role at work but still continued to struggle with leading and influencing others despite my efforts to close the gap, which left me frustrated and at a loss on how to improve. Working with Natalie allowed me to directly experience her leadership style—her focus on developing strong mutual trust as the foundation for building strong, positive relationships was what ultimately what helped me improve myself and lead more effectively. As a result, we were able to have difficult but productive conversations about things I could do better and areas to improve on. By keeping me accountable for my actions, she helped me understand to not become a victim to what I thought were unfair circumstances and that I am responsible for improving my situation. Since then, my growth as an effective coach and leader has been tremendous and I‘m finding great satisfaction in building stronger, positive relationships with the people both at and outside of work!

Natalie is the best boss I've ever had - hands down! Her leadership style is strong, compassionate, and fair, at the same time not afraid to communicate any challenges that you may have. She is my mentor as a strong leader as her communication style is that of complete transparency; there are never any surprises, good or bad, with her. She has high expectations and trusts you to get the job done without being a micromanager.  She will always assume the positive and give you the benefit of the doubt. She motivates her team members to want to do a good job. She'll never ask you to do something she wouldn't be willing to do herself. I can't say enough how awesome she is; both as a leader and a friend.

Natalie is such a dynamic leader and business partner. During our time together at Southeastern Mills, she was a trusted New Product Development partner, a leader of our High Performance Work Place culture, collaborative team player and an amazing leader with her team. She is always striving to get better and sets high expectations for herself and her team. It was a blessing to work with Natalie and I appreciate all she did to make our National Accounts, Broadline Foodservice and Industrial Sales Team better.

Natalie is a natural leader and a great team motivator. She has a unique way of utilizing her technical knowledge to build her team's capabilities while building relationships and loyalty. Her teams love her! Natalie was a tremendous High Performance mentor for me! I truly appreciate her contributions to our company.
