Nat started Leadership and Mentoring others on the finer points of getting on stage, young. As a Peer Support Leader and Lead/Senior Student in numerous School Productions, she often was called upon to run whole cast rehearsals and frequently Mentored many of the younger student on finding their groove on stage. Her efforts lead to her winning a nation-wide singing competition, receiving the year 12 Performing Arts award for making the greatest contribution that year to the local Performing Arts Community and getting into one of Victoria Australia's leading Contemporary Arts and Drama Tertiary Courses. And finding herself on stage performing Comedy pieces along side people you'd now recognise from both TV and Film.
After initially studying Performing Arts and then completing her Biological Science degree in 2005, Nat graduated as a Counsellor in 2007, initially working and volunteering in the Emergency Services, Mental Health and Community Services/NFP sector.

She was shortly after called upon to start sharing her expertise as a Speaker and Workshop Facilitator at numerous Industry Events, plus to facilitate Women's and Non-gender specific Circles to later support the attendees. Just for fun, she might also have helped facilitate and crew a few therapeutic dance events during that time too.
Simultaneous to this, she was Office and Practice Managing multiple Mental Health and Multi-Modality Wellness Clinics and Registered Training Organisations. Before, based on her success and skill in doing so, being invited to train as a Wellness Leadership Coach and Business Mentor, and continuing to more formally Coach, Mentor and Train Holistic Wellness Practitioners, Coaches, Consultants and Creative Therapists in the finer points of clarifying their message and target market/s, creating video and online content, creating, managing and speaking at live events and gaining initial momentum in their businesses. In addition to helping them transition through the mindset blocks and old wounds that had been holding them back from owning the heart centred power in their voices and stepping fully into their highest potential as Service Providers, Leaders and Speakers.
Over the last 19 years, and between and during times of study and research, Nat has also intermittently gained valuable Leadership insight supporting various State and National Managers in Corporate Health, Emergency Services and NFP's, plus local and Internationally recognised RTO’s. Recently also with numerous National and International Sustainability Leaders and their organisations.
Over the last decade, she has collaboratively brought together and helped over 20 000 Wellness and Service Based Entrepreneurs, Leaders, Managers and Public Speakers to share their important messages online and live.

When she's not helping Entrepreneurs, Managers and Organisational Leaders to make a difference and be amazing, fearless, happy, healthy Leaders and Public Speakers, or working on her grand plan to again own a rural property with both sustainable farming capacity and a retreat/conference space/dance studio, where she (and others) can be running Leadership and Speaking trainings, Corporate and Wellness Retreats, plus dance and movement classes and sustainability initiatives, you'll probably find Nat seeking out some nature or coastal walk she hasn't done yet, playing piano, singing, having meaningful conversations with good friends or total strangers at cafes or on the train, attending an ecstatic dance class or writing, in Sydney's Inner North. Or occasionally still putting all her former farm girl, zoology, agriculture and environmental science training and experience to good use looking after people's beloved fur children, while ever working on creating her own version of a happy, healthy, sustainable, work and personal life she loves.
