We wanted to get to know more about Natalie in her own words. Here's what she had to say...
What’s your home town?
I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario; a wonderfully diverse and fun Canadian city. I made my way down to Northwest Arkansas in 2016 and plan on staying forever after falling in love with the great access to nature, incredible amenities, and southern hospitality.
Why did you decide to join Bold Retail?
The team. This is a group rich with eCommerce, retail, and brand strategy experience where all have an ownership-mentality to deliver best in class work and client service.
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
I can't remember as there have been too many purchases since. What a revolutionary platform. You can find nearly anything, educate yourself and with a click of a button fulfill your need (....or want). What does this say about me? I am a heavily dependent user and may need intervention.
What is your favorite book?
Fiction: The Thornbirds
Non-Fiction/Autobiographical: Scar Tissue (huge Red Hot Chili Peppers fan)
What's your favorite place?
Local: Buffalo River
International: Greek Islands (particularly Santorini's caldera)
"I'm happiest when I'm..."
Playing on the Buffalo River with family and friends.
"People would be surprised to know...."
I used to be a competitive synchronized swimmer in my youth and can still do a few tricks.
