Natalie Bump ~ Youth Support Manager
Natalie started her journey with OISYS December of 2014, and completed her Human Services degree May of 2016. She has additional experience working in local school districts as a Special Education Paraprofessional and has worked with children of all ages with a wide variety of special needs (Autism and Emotional Behavior Disorders).
Before attending college, Natalie decided to travel the country while working for Americorps (a program that supports helping others while meeting the critical needs of a community). She worked with youth and families in low income neighborhoods and helped create a positive environment for children to learn and grow.
Natalie participates in many different musical activities, and enjoys teaching musical skills to others. She also enjoys spending time with her dog, painting, and has recently become a novice knitter. She believes that honesty and respect are the basis for any kind of relationship and strives to model these attributes to create positive relationships with youth. Her big smile and warm laugh brings much joy to those around her, and it shows through her work with every single person that comes to OISYS!
