After school, Natalie spent half the year working in a school in South Africa and then spent the ski season in Canada, during which time she took exams for and became qualified as a Ski Instructor, Snowboard Instructor and Ski Instructor for the Disabled. She returned to the UK to start a course in Sport & Physical Education at the University of Bedfordshire. However, midway through the course Natalie opted to focus on her passion for skiing, first as an instructor in Switzerland and then as a ski guide and chalet manager in Switzerland, Spain and Austria. Currently Natalie has set up her own holiday company called Snowflake Holidays (www.snowflakeholidays.co.uk) and is about to open her first property in Filzmoos, Austria ready for the first summer season.
