My name is Natalie and I use they/them pronouns. When I am not working I spend my time outside with my dog, working on sewing or home projects or trying new foods/restaurants around the East Bay. I'm deeply passionate about disability justice and accessibility as a queer disabled person who grew up in the Bay Area. I also grew up riding local transit anywhere it would take me! My favorite mode of public transportation is AC Transit.
How did you get involved with the Independent Living Movement?
I was first introduced to the IL movement when I began utilizing accommodations in my first year of college and was introduced to accessibility and IL by my undergrad counselor.
I love trying any new food!
I am obsessed with my dog Chile and I love all animals.
I really enjoy learning basic repair tasks around my home and even recently learning how to repair my own clothes.
