Natalie Hill

Rev. Natalie Hill is a Methodist minister and chaplain to MIT from the Welsey Foundation, a Boston Cambridge Ministry in Higher Education, founded by an ecumenical consortium of UMC, UCC, PC(USA), and American Baptist traditions. Natalie holds a B.A. and M.Div. from Boston University, and an M.S.W. from Simmons College. She worked as a clinical social worker for many years with a specialization in eating disorders, and entered ministry as an extension of this work. She is particularly interested in the role of spirituality in emotional wellbeing, as well as the intersection of faith, food, and embodiment. John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, was known to say that the world was his parish. Natalie invites students to instead view the world as their laboratory, bringing their questions and creativity into a wide range of life experiences
