The Communicator

As a former reporter and communications manager to one of Idaho’s largest cities, Natalie Podgorski understands the importance of crafting a strong message. Natalie draws on her skill and experience as a professional communicator to help clients tell their story.

As an award winning journalist, Natalie traveled across Idaho tracking important legislative issues at the Statehouse, covering wildfires in the mountains and visiting small towns to share their struggles and accomplishments with the rest of the state. Those experiences taught her how to turn complex issues into compelling stories, stay calm under pressure and work under tight deadlines. Natalie took those skills with her to the City of Meridian, where she worked closely with city leaders to develop new ways to connect with the community, guide crisis communications and build stronger media relationships.

Natalie graduated with honors from Arizona State University with a bachelor of arts in Broadcast Journalism. She is actively involved with her community, serving on committees for several nonprofits including Big Brothers Big Sisters and United Way of the Treasure Valley.

"Working with reporters can be intimidating - but it doesn't have to be. After spending years in front of the camera, I understand what journalists are looking for and can help guide you through the storytelling process. Whether you're facing a company crisis or want to share some good news with your community, you don't have to do it alone. I am here to help make sure the right story gets told."
