Natalie Roper, Broadband Coordinator

As the Broadband Coordinator, Natalie Roper leads the organization’s Locally Driven Broadband Solutions project, an initiative in partnership with the Benedum Foundation. Having served as the first Executive Director of GWV, she is now supporting the organization’s mission in a new way. With an understanding of how critical broadband access is to attracting, retaining, and advancing young people in the Mountain State, she works to leverage GWV’s statewide network of people and partner organizations to support communities in building broadband solutions that work for them. When not working on this initiative at GWV, she can be found developing new initiatives to support coal-impacted communities as the Director of Special Projects at the Just Transition Fund.
