Natalie Matenaer was born in Minnesota but moved at an early age to Northern California. Natalie moved to San Luis Obispo in 2010 to attend Cal Poly and fell in love with the central coast. She graduated in 2014 with an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences and a minor in Microbiology. Natalie attended Concordia University Wisconsin for her masters degree in Physician Assistant Studies, graduating in 2018. She couldn’t resist the temptation to return to the central coast and is so fortunate to call this amazing area home once again! Natalie is a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and has advanced her specialized knowledge of the skin through their Diplomate Fellowship program.
Outside of work Natalie loves exploring with family and friends all the central coast has to offer, including hiking and going to the beach. She also enjoys training for half marathons.
