Natalie Allio, MA
Natalie wears many hats, literally and figuratively. Her favorite is her broad brimmed, buckaroo style, straw hat, worn every day at Badger Creek Ranch nestled high in the mountains of Central Colorado where she works with her partners, equine and human, to live a sustainable lifestyle in sync with the rhythms of nature. Badger Creek Ranch offers a quiet connection to nature through partnership with horses and the land.
Natalie is an ecopsychologist, certified coach, rancher, storyteller and speaker. She has studied and taught leadership and communication in a variety of settings beginning with her undergraduate work in leadership and management in healthcare. She followed a winding path of exploration in the horse-human relationship beginning with horsemanship, to personal and professional coaching, and into equine assisted learning and coaching, ecopsychology, and collaborative, sustainable solutions.
Natalie serves on the board of Full Circle Farm Growth and Healing Center. She is a co-founder of the Women of Wisdom programs and co-creator of Shadow Work™ through Horses and Nature. She also serves on the Advisory Committee of Ben’s Ranch Foundation, an organization offering “teens and their families a new path forward that leverages the natural healing and calming influences of nature, livestock, outdoor chores, new relationships and disengagement from sources of stress and negative influences at home,” a mission that aligns beautifully with the vision of Badger Creek Ranch. Badger Creek Ranch serves as a host family for Ben’s Ranch Foundation, and a unique container for Women of Wisdom and SWHN retreats.
Combining the wisdom of nature, horses and collaborative solutions, Natalie is a guest lecturer, speaker, and coach, specializing in the psychology of collaboration, human dimensions in natural resources, and holistic life planning.
