Her Story

Natalie expertly builds systems and frameworks to last.


A serial entrepreneur, Natalie approaches RIA clients’ challenges from an aerial perspective, surveying an existing landscape, then constructing solid frameworks for new programs or enhancing existing systems with scalable, sustainable solutions.  


A passion for equity education and climate change solutions threads through her professional and volunteer experience.


As Director at Asia Philanthropy Circle (APC) Natalie conceived, built, and launched the Climate Collective, a forum that facilitates learning and collaboration with communities, markets, and governments for climate crisis solutions in Asia. She also focused on growing strategic philanthropy in Myanmar, Vietnam, and Malaysia. 


Prior to joining APC, Natalie was Deputy Vice President at Conjunct Consulting delivering capacity-building to social impact organisations. She created cross-sector collaborations among multiple stakeholders, including corporate foundations and social responsibility teams, grantmaking institutions, government statutory boards, non-profit organisations, and social enterprises.

As co-chair of PACE Schools, Natalie expanded existing program work in Cambodia to Myanmar. Partnering with provincial Ministries of Education, local NGOs, and the Myanmar Library Association, the initiative launched a schools and libraries program, including funding and on-the-ground volunteering to train local volunteers in operations. To drive donor awareness and sustainable funding, Natalie launched PACE Adventures bringing donors into the field in Myanmar.

In the private sector, Natalie worked in investment banking at Deutsche Bank, equity research at Morgan Stanley, and private equity consulting at Kurt Salmon Associates, where she launched a new practice area. She has a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University.


Natalie has a special interest in culinary arts and attended Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco. Following on she helped the San Francisco Chronicle launch their social enterprise, the Chronicle Cooking School, in the Ferry Building, home of the SF Farmers Market.


She has lived in Singapore for 15 years with her husband and four active children.
