Natalie first started as a flight attendant when ExpressJet was Continental Express in 1999. She has a background in teaching and the medical field. She earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Organizational Leadership and one in Psychology and Counseling. Being a flight attendant continues to be her dream job.
Natalie, since she was young, has had a heart for humanitarian work. She has led teams and been a part of relief efforts for natural disasters, medical missions, and other needs across the globe. Seeing the world has given her a broader perspective that people are more similar than they are different.
She was born in San Francisco, California and moved to New Jersey twenty years ago for the airlines. She is married with four children. It is her hope as President to continue to learn and grow and be the best representative for her fellow flight attendants.
Kari Hebert is a grievance rep for ORD and also serves as the secondary representative of the ERC/ASAP team. She was hired on with Express Jet in April 2010 as one of the 100 Flight Attendants to open the ORD base in May of that year. In 2012, she became a LOFT instructor. Kari is a native of Houston, Tx. She moved to Austin Texas in 2007 after graduating from Prairie View A&M University with a degree in Management Information Systems. In 2016, Kari moved back to Houston, but you’ll most likely find her at her second home in Atlanta. In her spare time, she travels the world and also studies the science of Healthy Eating and Naturopathy.
