Natalie graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 1997, with a BA (honours) degree in Learning Disability Nursing. Natalie worked in adult residential services initially, becoming a registered care home manager in 2000. In this role she set up one of the first supported living “projects” within the organisation, which was a great success for the young adults involved. By 2003, Natalie chose to move into a nursing post as a change from management. Initially Natalie worked in a respite centre for children and then moved to a community nursing service offering respite nursing to children and families at home and at school.

Natalie completed her MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice and Education in 2013 and later a post-graduate certificate in Children's nursing to become dual qualified. Natalie works both as a senior lecturer in Adult Nursing at the Swindon Campus and as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
