Prior to her daughter Lili being diagnosed with Infantile Spasms Syndrome, Natalie spent years teaching at St Paul’s School for Boys in Brooklandville, Maryland.
Natalie, her husband John, and her daughter Lili reside in Hanover, PA. They have dedicated much of their life since their daughter’s diagnosis to bringing awareness to others about seizures and LGS. Natalie previously spent years on the board of Directors for the Abilities Network and they both are current board members of Lili’s Lift, a not-for-profit organization named after their daughter which assists families with Making Life More Accessible. During their free time, they enjoy spending time outdoors as a family.
When asked about her involvement as the LGS Foundation board president Natalie responded, “My family and I believe strongly in the LGS Foundation’s mission, and have devoted our efforts to spreading awareness to others about this rare and devastating seizure syndrome.”
