|« About Laura||About Rachel »|
Born in Hayward, California on April 13th, 1980, Natalie lived in Orange County, Cali and then Puerto Rico for a while and a few other places across the USA (because her parents worked for the airlines). After surviving itchy wool skirts at a Catholic high school in Maryland, Natalie went to college at Denison University in Ohio where she earned a B.F.A in Theatre Performance. Then she hit NYC and the real world and discovered how the theatre and movie industry has nothing to do with good acting or talent. So, she decided to pursue something else. After being sucked into a pyramid scheme and then the slightly better automotive industry, she finally found he niche in teaching. Currently she is a pre-school teacher in Queens where she sings and dances with 4 year olds all day long (when not breaking up fights over blocks and finger painting rights) Eventually Natalie would like to persue her masters to become an English and Literature teacher for middle schoolers.
"I'm throughly enjoying how this diet has made me feel," she was heard saying, over the blaring 80's music in her one bedroom apartment. " Lemons are a God send in the morning. Even when I don't necessarily 'feel' like eating something beneficial, I notice immediately that, once the food's in my mouth, it's exactly what my body WAS CRAVING ALL ALONG!!!! It's really strange and nice all at the same time."
Natalie comes from a strong A family on her mom's side and seems to attract lots of O friends for some reason; including her best friend and husband, Carlos. They also have 3 adorable Russian Dwarf Hamsters named Carlos, Carlito and Charlemagne. She enjoys watching black and white movies, particularly Film Nior ones with Alan Ladd, critiquing modern ones and loves being outdoors for a reason she never understood before she heard about those Natural Killer Cells in Live Right For Your Type. Natalie has never liked exercise but is trying to at least start some yoga for the summer while her O is always running around or playing frisbee or football or something sweaty.
