Natalie was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana and moved to New Orleans in 2000 to attend LSU School of Nursing. She has been a Registered Nurse for 16 years, practicing in the areas of Surgical ICU, Cardiac ICU, Pre-Op and PACU for outpatient surgery, and school nursing. As a child, she was a dancer and an athlete, playing many different sports. Her love of health and wellness grew as she completed nursing school and started her career. Natalie began taking Pilates classes 13 years ago, after her twin daughters were born, and rediscovered her passion for it after rehabilitation from a back injury. She is Power Pilates Core Mat I and Core Mat II certified and is currently enrolled in the Power Pilates comprehensive certification program. When she’s not in the studio, Natalie enjoys spending time with her family.
