With a BA in Psychology, Natalie has had the privilege of working in the Counselling field for the past 15 years. Through her work and personal journey, she has witnessed the remarkable power of the human spirit. Natalie strongly believes that we are connected by similar and relatable experiences, and through her poetry she captures the brilliant beauty of life's journey.
In her own words she explains, "Through poetry I try to capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts - the brilliant beauty of life's journey. I believe we are connected by similar and relatable experiences. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye; we know the immobilizing force of grief; we experienced hardships that have brought tears, revelations, and self-discoveries of strength unknown. These trials could easily dishearten us, but instead we choose to be more loving, compassionate, and kind. That is worth celebrating!"
Natalie was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, with her two brothers and twin sister. She now resides in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, a Soldier in the Canadian Armed Forces, and their little dog Bella. She enjoys kayaking and the freedom and serenity of being one with water. She is an avid reader, passionate writer, and seeker of tranquility along life's mystifying journey.
In February 2015, Natalie published her first book of poetry - The Heart's Journey Home, a collection of 23 poems celebrating the brilliant beauty of life's journey.
