I’m a mother, daughter, loyal friend, teacher, advocate, Spokanite, and child of God. I grew up in the valley, graduated from U-High, then SCC, then Gonzaga for teaching, and finally Whitworth for my master’s.

My fondest memories were spending days in Spokane, especially Riverfront Park with my children, feeding the iron goat, riding the carousel, and the joy of sliding down the big red wagon. My roots in Washington run deep and Spokane is my home. I have lived in the same house in north Spokane for 25 years and I’ve been a teacher for my entire 18-year career in Spokane Public Schools!

Now I’m running for the Washington State House of Representatives District 3. I’ve chosen to run because I’ve seen how our home is changing and I’ve even fallen victim to those changes when I refused to be silenced by our school district regarding the mask mandates that had more to do with political science than it did with actual science. I’m a mom who wants more for our kids. We want more than a city where crimes and drugs are normalized, and we’re told that we aren’t the primary influencers in our children’s lives. We can bring vibrance back to our city by working together, serving our community, and advocating for those who haven’t been heard. We the people have not been heard–in fact, we’ve been ignored. That is about to change because I have the courage to stand up for our community.

If life has taught me anything, it has taught me that Courage is Contagious.  I need your help.  I need your support.  I need you to be courageous with me.

“I am proud to endorse Natalie Poulson for Washington State’s 3rd Legislative District. As a teacher and mother, Natalie has a refreshing perspective and will be a fierce advocate for students, families, and taxpayers.

Now more than ever, we need leaders in Olympia who will stand for individual choices and freedoms. Natalie will stand up against the status quo and will put our future generations first. Join me in supporting Natalie for the 3rd Legislative District.”
