More than nine years and 1,600 observation hours later, Natalie of the Houston Texans cheerleading team has earned her doctorate degree.
Natalie, who is a Houston-area native, earned her degree from Lamar University this past weekend. Audiology has been a passion of hers since she was an undergraduate student at Texas A&M University.
"Audiology has everything I love: the scientific aspect of things and helping people. I
found the right path," Natalie told Chron.com Tuesday morning.
