Natalie is the Director of Tennis Direct Australia, yet she is the late bloomer of our Team when it comes to love of all things sport. With her Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science and Masters in Pharmacy, Natalie had owned and managed multiple successful community pharmacies for almost 16 years. After adding a Diploma of Business Management and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, along with multiple qualifications in mental health specialising in regional areas, she was looking for a new challenge.

Bringing her customer service background, focus on physical and mental health, strong retail acumen, analytical mind, and aptitude for online shopping, she has joined the Team with objectivity and enthusiasm.

Natalie is keen to develop her skills across new sectors, and her passion for equality and diversity across all demographics and abilities has been the impetus for many of our broader business strategies moving forward.
