Natalie danced for the College of Brockport, spent two years cheering with the "Jills" of the Buffalo Bills NFL Football Team. Lately, she's been supporting the New York Giants as a member of the unofficial performance team the "Gotham City Cheerleaders." Natalie appeared in their 2013-2014 swimsuit calendar as well as Super Bowl appearances. She also currently a high school cheerleading coach.
Natalie describes her time as a pro cheerleader as "priceless," stating, "The women in pro cheerleading are strong, highly educated, and independent individuals with passion to perform as well as be an influential part of the community. I left the team a stronger, more poised, and blessed person than when I started my journey. I couldn't be more thankful for everything management has taught me and the opportunities I was given."
Natalie takes pride in helping other women join this sisterhood! Contact Going Pro today to meet with Natalie in New York City, Buffalo or in between!

Ten years ago, I was rounding out my rookie year as an NFL Cheerleader. I had worked years to build my dance training, endured an "unsuccessful" NFL audition, performed for another team to gain experience, and finally, yes FINALLY! I was living the life I had dreamed as a cheerleader in the National Football League.
But let me tell you, the job was not simply handed to returning NFL cheerleaders. As I entered a new year, my resolve had to be stronger and more focused.
