Coming from the great Buckeye state, Natalia discovered the world of wilderness therapy in the most round about way. After traveling for a few years post college she found her way to Utah to Elements Wilderness Program for what she assumed would be another stop-over job. The stop-over job became a passion and a career that lead her to Elements Traverse. Though it is something she was not expecting she is filled with gratitude for the wilderness. She has found the work of the wilderness not only beneficial for the clients but also staff.
When she isn’t in the field you can find her running the dusty desert trails of Moab, finding adventures in the deepest corners of canyons, and on top of climbs she struggled to climb.
