I grew up on a small farm west of Edmonton.
Graduated High School from Stony Plain Memorial High.
I started in the Optical industry in 1989 working at an office in West Edmonton Mall.
After completing the Nait Optical program, I received my licence in 1992. Over the years I worked for both large chain stores and small independent offices.
In 2002 we started Trendz Optical now celebrating 16 years in business.Over the past 4-5 years I have enjoyed speaking with daycares, play schools, mom's groups and schools.
Educating them on how our eyes see, the importance of regular eye exams. I really enjoy working with the young children, some of the questions they ask...lots of fun!
In 2017 I became involved with the Homeless Connect Edmonton. This is a community inspired initiative that provides Free services to people experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless. This is a great opportunity to join with fellow Opticians and Optometrists to provide eye care to those in need.
My husband Glenn and I have 2 children: Our son is 20 and our daughter is 15 years. When I am not working, I enjoy playing on a women's soccer team both indoor and outdoor, I also enjoy gardening.
As a family we enjoy camping during the summer months, usually bring out the quad and motorbikes and go for a long ride. I prefer 4 wheels so Iím on the quad.
Dr. Natalie Chai was born and raised in Edmonton.

In 2014, Dr. Chai graduated with a doctorate of Optometry with distinction and a Bachelor of Science in Vision Science from Pacific University. Her clinical experience has given her extensive training in primary eye care, ocular disease, contact lenses, and pediatrics. In addition to providing quality eye care, she strongly believes in the importance of taking the time to educate her patients on the status of their eye health and in turn their general health. She continually strives to keep conversation open and to help patients realize eye sight is more than just seeing 20/20. In her spare time, Dr. Chai enjoys fitness, sports, and spending time with family and friends.
