Commissioner Crawford named Georgia Trend “40 under 40”
Habersham County would like to congratulate Commissioner Natalie Crawford
 
 
CLARKESVILLE, Ga., –– Each year Georgia Trend Magazine honors 40 of the state’s best and brightest under the age of 40. Habersham County would like to congratulate Commissioner Natalie Crawford on being named one of Georgia Trend’s 40 Under 40.
 
The ideal candidates are successful in their professions and are passionate about community service. This year’s 40 Under 40 were selected by the Georgia Trend staff from nominations provided by readers throughout the state who know nominees best.
 
In her day job, Natalie Crawford sells proprietary financial systems to clients with assets worth more than $1 billion. Her side hustle is serving as a two-term Habersham County commissioner.
 
After graduating from Piedmont College, Crawford returned to her native Habersham County and put down roots. She was compelled into public service around the time of the Great Recession, when she watched industry leave her hometown, two community banks fail and several small businesses shutter.
 
After getting her toes wet as chair of a local hospitality board, she took office as the District 4 commissioner in 2013. In that role, she commissioned the first corridor overlay study and helped form the county’s economic development council.
 
“I grew up a preacher’s kid,” she says, “and I feel like I’m called to serve.”
 
Commissioner Natalie Crawford is featured in the October issue of Georgia Trend.
