Meet our Team

Natalie Smith

Natalie Smith

Operations Manager

Seldom few things are truly important to me; of those I hold dearest there are more obvious ones such as family and friends, a good coffee first thing in the morning, Detroit teams (GO BLUE!) and waking up before the alarm goes off. Once I’m fully caffeinated my mission is to influence the future leaders of tomorrow. Though WLSA I hope to make empathy, sustainability and cultural understanding mainstream in all facets of education, and that those students from the most privileged to the most at risk find their own unique voice.
