Clark received her Bachelor’s in Psychology and later went on to obtain her Master’s Degree in Sports Leadership and Coaching from the University of Central Florida.
After graduating Clark became a Physical Education teacher and Lacrosse Coach. Clark has also given entrepreneurship a go, founding the Braveheart Girls Lacrosse Club where she served as the Director for 5 years.

During her time as a Lacrosse Coach, Clark also lead her team to the #1 ranking in the state of Florida, coached the High School US National Lacrosse Team for Florida, and was honored as 2016 US Lacrosse Coach of the Year.
Making stops at Orlando City Soccer, IMG Academy and Florida Atlantic University before landing at the Hard Rock Stadium. In her current role Clark focuses on activating and executing special events contracted at the Hard Rock Stadium. These special events include revenue generating events when clients are interested in the event space, non- profit and community events. Clark also assists with the Miami Open Tennis Tournament Fan Zone, where she manages fan experience and events operations.

On a day to day basis she focuses on working with clients, managing vendors, and coordinating every aspect of an event day.
When she is not working events, Clark enjoys gardening, working out and being active outdoors. Clark’s passion as an athlete helped her become driven to be one of the best in all that she does. This drive and determination has helped her in her career and she hopes to help others as she makes her way up. Natalie Clark is a GladiatHER tackling life and the world on her own terms!
