Her interest in public health stems from a longstanding commitment to advocating for refugees, migrants, and other displaced persons, specifically in regards to their physical and mental well-being. Natalie also shares a passion for social innovation and women’s economic empowerment and hopes to better understand how market-based livelihoods can promote not only resiliency but also better psychosocial outcomes among refugee women.
