Board Member Feature - Michael Natzic, Chairman of the Board
Tell us a little about yourself:
As the youngest of 9 children, I had a good upbringing. With 8 sibling you are bound to have a great deal of diversity and our house was just that. I always loved being part of a big family which is something that still embrace today. After high school, I worked hard to find my way and gradually found my way into the world of finance. I started my career in the mortgage business and over the years transitioned into a Financial Advisor. Today I am a Senior Vice President with DA Davidson and head our Community Bank & Wealth Management Group.
Why did you choose to join the DOVES board?
Well quite simply, I was asked! As the father and husband of a young and growing family I looked to find a way to give back to the community and DOVES was just that. Little did I know that over 14 years later, I would still be here.
What is your favorite part about working with the DOVES organization?
The People. At DOVES I find that we are so blessed by those around us. Whether it is a staff member or a client everyone is here for some reason. Our staff is so convicted it is so inspiring to see the passion they have for their jobs. Then we have the clients that want to make that change in their lives and we are here for them ready and willing to help! At DOVES we make the ultimate difference in that we save lives! Also, I can't forget my fellow Board Members who make all of this possible with their love and support for the organization.
What do you do for fun?
My number one pastime is spending time with my family. Having four children you can guarantee that there is always something happening around the house. When not with the kids I enjoy those weekend getaways with my wife, Nicole.
