Natalie was inspired to donate when her friend’s daughter was in end-stage renal failure, and she felt compelled to help. She is climbing not only for the physical challenge post kidney donation but out of a strong sense of responsibility to advocate for living donation.
Natalie is a nonprofit fundraiser in Flowery Branch, Georgia. She lives with her dog Sabi Bean. When she is not climbing mountains, she enjoys lake life, hiking, dogs, travel, photography, and tennis.
Natalie donated her kidney on July 16, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia, and is a member of the board of directors with KDA. “I was excited to join the team as a physical challenge post kidney donation but also really feel a strong responsibility to advocate for living donation.”
