Natalie first entered the field of health and personal care when she became a massage therapist. Working in the spa industry quickly piqued her interest in skin care, and she went on to complete the training necessary to receive her aesthetician's license, at which time she became employed as a clinical aesthetician and endermologist at the Plastic Surgery Center in Abington, Pennsylvania. She later accepted a position at Adolf Biecker Spa in Philadelphia, where she was quickly promoted to the position of aesthetics director for the Jean Madeline chain of day spas. During her time at Adolf Biecker, Natalie was a frequent guest educator at the Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, lecturing to advanced esthetics students on the topic of medical aesthetics.
Natalie has an aesthetician's license from the State of Pennsylvania and earned her certification in advanced medical aesthetics from Central Texas College through the Central Texas Clinical Skin Care Center. She graduated from the Holistic Health Institute in Orchard Lake, MI, as a certified massage therapist.
