At Mintz, Natalie serves as a member of both the Firm’s Pro Bono Committee (a cross-sectional group of attorneys who select new pro bono projects and provide continuing support for long-term initiatives) and the Women’s Associate Subcommittee of the Firm’s Women’s Initiative (an affinity group dedicated to supporting and enriching the lives and careers of the firm’s female attorneys).

Outside the Firm, Natalie serves as a member of the Associate Leadership Board of the Phoenix Charter Academy Network (an organization serving a distinct population of students struggling with their academic program) and the Boston Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Steering Committee (a group of Massachusetts lawyers who meet to expand their expertise in the areas of labor and employment, labor-management relations, and employment discrimination). The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has recognized Natalie on its “Honor Roll” or “High Honor Roll” for the provision of pro bono legal services in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
