General Background

Natalie is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Advanced Oncology Certified Nurse (AOCN)TM. Natalie has over two decades of nurse practitioner experience working in community oncology settings and palliative care. Natalie also served as a former executive director for the Nebraska Oncology Society where she managed state society activities and advocated for cancer health policy at the local and national level.
