After graduating from the Indiana University School of Medicine, Nathalie trained in Emergency Medicine at The George Washington University.  She is now Vice Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Eden Medical Center near Oakland, California.  Her interests outside of medicine include scouring the Bay Area for the best tacos (an impossible task), reading novels with poor narrative arcs and coming up with creative ways to keep her two sons from becoming patients in the ED.  She occasionally puts up a burst of tweets at @EDintrovert.
