Life can be hectic enough between school and other responsibilities, so when illness, accidents, or family emergencies hit it can be hard to stay afloat.


Natalie has been at Montgomery College since the fall of 2015. Originally from Montgomery County, she left the area in 2001 after graduating high school. She lived in Canada, Mexico, Scotland, and Uruguay before returning to the States for three years in New York City. After ten years away from home, she came back to the DC region in 2011. She began a career in radio and now works as a soundboard operator at WAMU 88.5, DC's local National Public Radio member station. Curiosity about video and television production brought her back to school. Natalie's favorite part of production is video editing. Outside of school and work, she spends as much time as possible with her six-toed cat, Columbo; ideally while watching Bob's Burgers.

  1. Hi Natalie, glad to see you are feeling much better! Personally, I rarely call in sick and if I do, you can be sure I really am. I can honestly say I have never ‘played hookey’. However, it sounds like it is more commonplace than we would like to admit. A funny mention on TV this past week on calling in to the boss if one intends to – cough – be sick. Specifically, 6:38 AM on a Tuesday! Commonly, people call in on Mondays and Fridays, which raises suspicions. I just found it ironic that people were being coached on national TV how to pull the wool over their bosses eyes! Of course, you and I will never need to use this tip 🙂
