Through hard work and determination Natalie Nakase reached her goal of becoming a coach in the NBA.

Nakase is now the fourth woman to coach during a regular NBA Season and the first in Los Angeles, joining the LA Clippers coaching staff.

But it wasn't easy for Natalie to get there. Nakase started as a assistant video coordinator with the Clippers Organization for three seasons and then moved up to become an assistant coach with the Agua Caliente Clippers for the three more seasons.

Natalie is a testament that continuous hard work can get you to places you'd never thought you be or reach no matter your skin color or gender.
