Natalie is Oneida from Oneida Nation of the Thames on her mother’s side, and English, Scottish and Dutch on her father’s side. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, she has been a grateful visitor on unceded WÁSNEĆ and Songhees territory since childhood, and also has had the privilege of living and learning in Tkaronto, on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
Natalie completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Victoria and her law degree at the University of Toronto. During law school, she was an active member of the Indigenous Law Students Association, organizing cultural events and bringing awareness to legal issues in Aboriginal law as well as Indigenous legal traditions. She also acted as a group leader of the Police Oversight Working Group at the David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights, creating a comprehensive guide for civilian complaints against police bodies. A long-time volleyball enthusiast, she played competitively with the University of Toronto Tri-Campus League women’s team, and was a key player on the Faculty of Law intramural volleyball team.
After articling and practicing at a boutique personal injury firm in Toronto, Natalie joined Carfra Lawton in 2021. She works on a variety of files, including personal injury, occupiers liability and property disputes. She is excited to be back on the beautiful west coast and looks forward to growing her practice in Victoria.
What is your deepest obsession outside of work?
I’m a huge volleyball nut! Whether it’s indoor, grass, or beach (the latter being more recreational because running in sand is hard), you can find me playing all times of the year.
What is your perfect meal?
Honestly, nothing can beat a good-old fashioned burger and fries, complemented with a bone-dry, extra funky cider.
How do you explain your job to your family?
I’m the only lawyer in the family, so I keep it short and sweet: I defend insurance companies and work to ensure claims are settled promptly and fairly.
