I am the Director of Philanthropic Scholarships for University Development at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. In my role I oversee campus-level scholarship programs, ensuring fundraising efforts lead to accurate and efficient scholarship implementation. I also strengthen the critical connection between University Development and the Office of Financial Aid to steward and support donor intent and support campus scholarship administrators. I've dedicated over twenty years of service to removing financial barriers for those who wish to pursue higher education, and has demonstrated her ability to utilize technology by serving as a subject matter expert for the implementation of Campus Solutions and spearheading the Blackbaud Award Management system adoption at UCCS.
I'm an instructor for the Gateway Program Seminar, partnering with College of Business faculty and local employers to guide students through a curriculum focused on career exploration. I enjoy creating co-curricular experiences that expand students’ financial literacy and career skills.
In my education I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling and Human Services with an emphasis in Student Affairs in Higher Education and a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems and Marketing. Me and my husband Matthew are proud parents of two children. I'm a Cochlear Americas volunteer where she shares the story of her son’s hearing journey with parents who have recently learned their child has severe to profound hearing loss. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Southern Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce.

My name is Natalie Martinez and I am a fourth year Communications major at UCCS. I have been mentoring students for the past three years and have a huge passion for what I do. Outside of the classroom I am fraternity sweetheart for Alpha Sigma Phi and love making any sort of craft. Also, I am a huge Chicago Cubs fan. I named my dog after my favorite MLB player, Anthony Rizzo. After my undergrad I either want to get my Master’s Degree from UCCS or go to Law School at Denver University. I look forward to getting to know each of you and being part of your journey to success!
