Research & Storytelling Lead
Natalie Napier is Research & Storytelling Lead. She holds a BA in International Development, and an MA in (Canadian) History. Before joining IWF, she worked in community economic development for over ten years, where she has helped found social enterprises and cooperatives. Natalie finds the human kind of problems the most irresistible (but will quickly walk away from a computer on the blink.) The ways that communities produce different opportunities, experiences, and connections is, in her opinion, just gripping. She lives in Peterborough, Ontario.
Fun fact: In grade two, Natalie dragged her brother down to last place on a televised, sibling-based game show called Kidstreet. She still loves (to lose) at Trivial Pursuit.
