Meet Our Facilitator

Hello everyone!

My name is Atalie, or Natalie without the “N.”  I grew up in Dubuque, Iowa but have resided in Des Moines, Iowa for the last 10 years.  I received my Bachelor’s degree from Drake University in Health Sciences and my Master’s degree in Public Health from Des Moines University.  I have worked for several nonprofits and on a research study and am presently employed as a full-time human performance coach at EMC Insurance.  My role involves coaching employees in a variety of areas including, but not limited to, proper nutrition, mindfulness, stress management, communication, and personal and professional development.


I have worked with youth in the past at various nonprofits and am excited to embark on this new journey.  One of my future goals is to become a foster parent and I am looking forward to learning more about the child welfare system from the youth and sharing that unique perspective with the rest of the Des Moines community. 


In my free time, I enjoy playing sand volleyball competitively and traveling.  I also do stand-up comedy and am a member of an all-female entrepreneurial group called FemCity.  My hope is to one day own and operate a coaching business.  I also cherish spending time with family and friends and my two guinea pigs, Sage and Loomi.
