“Impetuous? Irresponsible? Convoluted thinking? Oh, yeah. That was how I operated with money.”

My story begins in Maine.

Before I moved to New York City to become a stage actress, writer, cartoonist, arts educator, not-for-profit founder, reflexologist, writing mentor to girls, published author and illustrator…Before all of that, I grew up in rural Maine. I was born second eldest of ten children. Ten. There were ten of us. In my mind’s eye I have an image of my mother when I am a girl of 9 or 10. She is standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes. There is something radiating from her.

“There’s not enough!!!”

It’s neon sign strong and it gets inside of me. That is how – before I even know what a ‘worldview’ is – I begin seeing through the lens of scarcity. I was a girl with scarcity consciousness who dreamed of being a great somebody someday. As great as the great French stage actress, Sarah Bernhardt.

Meet Natalie

““I surrendered so much of myself, I didn't know where to begin.”

. . . a Gen Z, latch-key kid and the first born daughter of immigrants. Both of those roles came with challenging experiences and a chaos I was not equipped to manage as a child.

As a result, I grew up anxious, isolated, and overweight. By the time I turned 12, I was taller than the adults in my life reaching over six feet tall. And by the time I was 15, I weighed 100 lbs more than was healthy for my height.

To add to the confusion around my body and weight, I was raised in two competing cultures. My stoic Eastern European household valued women for their service, strength, strategy, and resilience. Beyond that household was the American society that prized women for their petiteness, fragile femininity, submissiveness, and as sexual objects.

What I didn’t understand then was that the weight was a symptom of — that became a problem of its own
