Natalee has always had a love for animals and has adopted many pets over the years. Her cat , Handsome, was found on the street of Woburn, MA as a kitten. He was in need of a loving home and Natalee scooped him up. A year afterwards she and her family realized that Handsome needed a friend and that is when they adopted another cat, Pretty, from the Salem Animal Rescue League. Later on, with two cats in the house they decided it was time to adopt a dog, and spent a lot of time visiting shelters. They eventually found him at the Cacheco Valley Humane Society - a golden retriever named Brewsky who has been a wonderful addition to their family!
Natalee attended Flagler College in Florida and went on to receive a degree in Liberal Studies.
