With a southern mother and Hawaiian father, Natalie Morrison grew up eating a delicious mix of Chinese food, fried chicken and sweet tea. After spending her childhood in Hawaii, Natalie moved with her mother to North Carolina, where she finished high school and earned a degree in speech pathology from East Carolina University. In 1996, graduate school brought her to Southern California. To put herself through school, she waited tables, getting swept up in food and wine. Natalie followed the siren's song of food and wine, selling for a wine broker in San Diego.
In 2002 she joined the Honig team, first managing the San Diego/ Orange County area, then moving to the Bay Area to manage Monterey to San Francisco, and the East Bay.
In 2006 on the North Shore of Oahu, in a small ceremony among close family and friends, Natalie married Robert Morrison. They live in the hills of the East Bay with daughter Alia and son Koa, and enjoy renovating their home and working in the garden.
