How Natalie Helps Clients
Prior to joining Buchanan, Natalie served as a certified legal intern at Villanova University’s Interdisciplinary Mental and Physical Health Law Clinic, where she helped low-income clients understand their rights to accessible health care treatment and assisted several people with administrative hearings and cases in the state court. Also, she worked as a corporate compliance and regulatory affairs intern at AmeriHealth Caritas, which entailed summarizing federal and state regulations and communicating these laws to clients, as well as analyzing state contract language related to compliance requirements.
In addition, Natalie worked as a judicial extern for the Honorable Linda Carpenter at the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, which allowed to her observe courtroom proceedings and act as a deputy clerk when needed.

Also, through an assortment of internship and clerk positions, Natalie gained valuable experience preparing memoranda in criminal and personal injury cases; communicating with international clients; keeping abreast of education policy developments around the United States; creating child and family policy advocacy materials; and drafting court documents in personal injury, motor vehicle accident, and medical malpractice matters.
