Hi my name is Natalie Lowary. Welcome to my personal/professional website.
A lot of people ask me what do I know or what do you specialize in, I always answer with I know a little about a lot of things. My experiences in both my professional and personal life have taken me from learning graphic design to knowing how to manipulate a database, from utilizing Microsoft outlook to track tasks to knowing how to write a RFP (Request for Proposal) and many more things.
A little about me... I lived in Germany for the first 10 years of my life. My father is a civilian contractor for the Military and works on computers, because of this I have been on a computer since I was 5 years old. We moved to Florida in 1991 and I had to adjust to a different way of how things are done. During school I picked up playing the violin and played it for about 7 years. One thing about me that is personal is that I would love to travel more. I have visited multiple countries either while I was living in Germany, attending a study abroad program or attending University. I definitely would love to be able to visit more states in the USA.
I started working when I was 15 in the photo lab at Eckerd's and then moved onto Warner Bros. Studio Store (stayed with store till it closed it's doors) and then to Kinko's (now Fedex Office). When I was 20 I started my professional career as an Administrative Assistant at the Brandon Chamber of Commerce. At 24 I decided that I needed to get my Bachelors Degree. I wanted to specialize in Events Management because of all the planning and organization. I researched different schools and decided to attend University in Leeds, England. When attending University I realized that I preferred the project management side of Event planning. I completed a dissertation on the different software programs that assist with the planning side of events.
