Meet Natalie, the Made With Love Kitchen Project Coordinator

Natalie came to DC in the fall 2013 and has enjoyed exploring the city's wide variety of culinary spots, although her favorite place to eat is with the L'Arche community. Beyond her love of food, Natalie also enjoys time on her yoga mat, horseback riding, painting and writing. Looking for where the love was in DC, she was so excited to have found WithLove DC and looks forward to sharing her joy of cooking with the district.
