Happy, humourous and honest are the three words Natalie Collison thinks her colleagues would use to describe her.
Better known as Nat, the mother of three loves the flexibility of her role at Valorium Advisors and the passionate support she gets from the team.
Working in a fast-paced role has its perks. Nat loves how every day is different and she gets to wear a huge range of ‘hats’ as Practice Manager.
Her role revolves around assisting the running of the day-to-day requirements of the business to ensure her teammates are able to focus on their clients. She enjoys organising and helping to support the business, but the thing Nat enjoys most is working with like-minded women who share similar family values.
In addition, she feels she is very lucky that the other members of the Valorium team are just as coffee-obsessed as she is. The team start every day with a meeting and a coffee to debrief on what the day ahead is going to bring.
As a huge lover of family time, Nat’s favourite thing to do outside of work is spend time is taking her kids to the beach or on overseas trips. She appreciates spending time with friends and loves to entertain at home (and drink a little wine with them.)
After previously having breast cancer, Natalie lives by the saying “time is a gift, enjoy each day.” She’s passionate about supporting the charities who supported her and has been a huge advocate in our business’ connection to Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation.
Happy to listen to everything from Andrea Bocelli to Ed Sheeran, Nat is a sucker for a good seafood linguine and would love Toni Collette to play her in a film.
Fun fact? Natalie jumped on the pandemic impulse purchases and bought a family pet in lockdown! Freddy – a cheeky black Labrador who eats anything and everything in sight.
