A note from Natalie

I have been working with children since I was barely more than a child myself. Over the last 15 years I have collaborated with thousands of students, parents, and educators across the US, helping to bring positive change into the lives of children with practical, proven strategies that can be implemented right away! I specialize in motivating, inspiring and entertaining audiences with research based information delivered with humor. I draw heavily from my background as a mental health therapist to assist educators in empowering and connecting with the students they lead each and every day. As a successful counselor, educator, and national trainer I proudly teach, motivate, and inspire participants in my on-site school trainings. Please contact me today to find out more.

About Me!

“Never let her stop speaking.” My mother still vividly recalls the day my 3rd grade teacher, the most inspiring and challenging educator I ever studied under, made this firm recommendation. She explained that I, even as a self-professed “shy extrovert” at age 8, was able to engage audiences in a way that most could not. Presenting is my passion, and it is my craft. I am honored to both educate and entertain, as well as inspire. Learn More…
