Previous to her role at the Department, Natriece worked for the Department of Revenue as the Communications Specialist for the Division of Motor Vehicles in Driver’s License Administration on multiple community issues.

She specialized in community outreach and fraud prevention at the Department. She also was the Communications Specialist for the Marijuana Enforcement Division where she worked on varying issues surrounding public safety and consumer education. She worked with marijuana businesses on regulatory issues as well as how to successfully implement a business model in compliance with state law. She was the media relations partner and worked with law enforcement agencies to ensure all businesses were operating in full compliance and outside of the blackmarket, preventing marijuana from entering the hands of children in Colorado.
