Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Natalie obtained her law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2020, and articled in Saskatoon for a small family firm. She was called to the bar in 2021 and began her legal career after a return to Edmonton.
Natalie's time in law school was marked by a keen interest in negotiation and mediation. She earned a spot on the Family Law Negotiation Moot team, participating in competitions in Saskatoon and Winnipeg. She later spent time coaching lower year students in preparation for the same competition.
While she prefers a collaborative approach, Natalie recognizes that certain situations necessitate litigation; bringing a balanced perspective to ensure the best outcomes for those she represents.
During her legal journey, Natalie has had the privilege of serving on the board of directors for the Terra Centre here in Edmonton, where she contributes to the organization's mission of making a positive impact in the community.
In addition to her professional commitments, Natalie finds joy in reading, exploring new destinations, spending time with her family and dog, as well as passionately cheering for the Edmonton Oilers.
Natalie is thrilled to bring her skills and dedication to Demas Schaefer. With a foundation in family law and a holistic approach to legal practice, she looks forward to continuing her journey of serving the Edmonton community.
