Natalie's passion for serving others started young - she developed a solid background in Restaurants, Retail and Education, which eventually shifted into a love for Human Resources. Her Four Seasons career started in 2006, where she managed the recruitment and development for the global Corporate employees. She briefly left the organization to join Cadillac Fairview as their Talent Management lead focused on establishing core learning curriculum and infrastructure, and supporting change management initiatives. After two years in this role, she 'boomeranged' back to Four Seasons with a broader scope supporting leadership, service delivery, quality assurance, and talent management. Over the last six years, she has led several strategic talent development initiatives, including the global launch of a multi-faceted HRMS talent module, the implementation of assessments for talent acquisition, the Company's first global open source technology implementation, a talent growth strategy for China, and the revamp of the global orientation program. Currently, Natalie leads learning strategy and execution for over 45,000 employees in 38 countries.
Natalie completed her Bachelor of Arts as well as a Bachelor of Education at Queen's University in Kingston Ontario. After teaching high school for a year, she decided to switch gears and completed a Masters of Industrial Relations with a focus on Organizational Behaviour, and following that, a post-graduate diploma in Human Resources Management to support a shift into Learning Strategy and Talent Management.
