HR & Safety Specialist
Natalie is the AHLA’s HR and safety expert. She ensures hotels have the resources and information they need on Occupational Health & Safety, the Workers’ Compensation Board, and HR practices. Properties are invited to contact Natalie anytime if they have a question about HR and health & safety practices.
With a Bachelor of Business degree with a major in Human Resources Management from NAIT, Natalie began her career as an HR Coordinator with AdaptAbilities, a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals with special needs develop essential life skills. She made the jump to the hospitality industry when she was hired as the JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District’s HR Generalist in 2018, prior to their opening.
In the winter, Natalie can be found tearing up the slopes at Lake Louise on her snowboard. In the summer, she loves to smack golf balls down the fairway; walk her Goldendoodle, Oliver; or enjoy her newest hobby — sailing. Although everyone at the AHLA really likes Natalie, we refuse to ride in a car with her because she insists on making everyone participate in sing-a-longs. Sorry, Natalie, none of us gets paid enough to do that.
