Natalie Cormier is the newest addition to the Department of Political Science staff. Having joined the department in December 2020, Natalie is passionate about helping others succeed. She received her Master of Public Service and Administration (MPA) from Texas A&M after completing her B.A. at The University of Texas. Her education prepared her to work in the public sector and reinforced the value of information and learning. UW was a perfect fit for her as she was able to escape the Texas heat, humidity, and insects.
Prior to joining the Political Science Department, Natalie worked with numerous higher education programs supporting student success, public information, and learning accessibility in Texas and Washington. Just before joining the department, she provided publication support for research teams at UW’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. She also has had extensive experience working and volunteering with youth programming and literacy promotion.
In her free time, Natalie spends most of her time reading and solving newspaper puzzles including the crossword, ken ken, and word jumble. Moving to Washington has also motivated her to enjoy the outdoors more and go on long walks. If you have any recommendations for food near campus, Natalie would love to know as she strives to enjoy good food wherever she goes.
