HRA is pleased to congratulate our president and CEO, Natalie Perrin, on 15 years with the company! Natalie, who graduated with a BA in Theater from the University of Georgia, worked in real estate and at the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation before coming west to pursue an MS in Historic Preservation at the University of Oregon. We are so lucky that in 2008, the stand-out preservationist with a passion for studying masonry and carpentry, deciphering state and federal policy, and preparing large-format photographs chose to join HRA as an architectural historian. Always pursuing exciting projects, she has helped reconstruct a French trapper’s cabin at Fort Vancouver, contributed to the historic structures review for Heceta Head Lighthouse in Florence, Oregon, and authored and collaborated on countless nominations, HABS/HAER documents, and technical reports, always encouraging her teammates to provide the “gold standard” in documentation. Known for her research and writing skills, tireless enthusiasm, and generous mentorship, Natalie is a leader in the cultural resources field and at HRA, where she was named president and CEO in 2023 after many years of managing HRA’s multi-faced architectural history program. Congratulations on your extensive accomplishments, Natalie!
