Bio

Natalie has played power soccer for more than 15 years. After initially being forced by her parents to play because she wanted nothing to do with the sport, she immediately realized how great power soccer was and never looked back. Born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Natalie's always lived life from a power chair. It wasn't until the introduction of power soccer that she found a true way to release her competitive spirit. She's been extremely fortunate to travel to Japan, Brazil, and Australia for international tournaments and also helped train athletes in Argentina. Each Team USA experience taught her something different about leadership, taking risks, self-confidence, and perseverance. Natalie has a BA in Journalism and owns and runs a web design business.

“I am thrilled to be apart of 2021 Team USA that will be bringing the cup back to the US.”
