2018-2019 Central Region Area 1 Venturing President - Natalie Nichols

A1-Natalie_Nicols.jpgNatalie Nichols is the Central Region Venturing Area 1 President for 2018-2019. Natalie served previously as Central Region Venturing Area 1 Vice President of Communications and Northern Star Council Venturing President.

Natalie is a founding member of Crew 695 in Northern Star Council, and has been involved in Venturing since 2016. She founded a Venturing crew after growing up as the classic tag-along little sister in a Scout troop. She's grateful for her older brother's patience and for her parents' support in the foundation of a crew and beyond in Venturing!

During her time in Venturing, Natalie has served as Area 1 Vice President of Communications and Northern Star Council Venturing President, as well as President and VP of Communications in Crew 695. She has served on staff at Kiwanis Scout Camp, where she earned Staff Member of the Year for her work there, and was a Counselor-in-Training at Many Point Scout Camp. She has completed and staffed a number of different trainings, and has earned the Venturing, Discovery, and Pathfinder awards. She is working on her Summit award.

Natalie is an incoming senior in Eden Prairie, MN. She is currently home-schooled, but attends on-campus college classes through a dual-credit program. In her spare time, Natalie can be found chasing her dog or dressing up as a Disney princess at part of her job at a local toy store. She frequently works with children, volunteers in her church, and enjoys good coffee, literature, traveling, music, and studying languages.

In her term, Natalie looks forward to connecting with Venturers from around Area 1 and Central Region and strengthening the Venturing programs in Area 1's 11 councils through increasing social media use, connecting with and creating council VOAs, and providing trainings for future officers throughout the Area. She loves to talk about her excitement for the Venturing program, and looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm with the rest of her fellow officers and Area 1 Venturers, as well as attend VenturingFest this summer!
