Each of us are blessed with individualized talents to direct us throughout our lives. Nathalie knew, even at a young age, that her talents would focus around serving others. Born to South American parents, she spent her early childhood in Ecuador with Spanish as her first language and a unique culture that provided a deep respect for family and faith. That early influence never left her and became her foundation as she spent her remaining childhood years here in the states.
Her love for interpersonal connections and relationships guided her on a career path where she could utilize her talents and make a difference in the lives of others. At a young age she started out in retail, communications and public service. Later she transitioned into nutrition and personal training where she could help people on a more personal basis and make a real impact in their lives.
Along this path she transitioned to being a hairstylist and has spent over 23 years working with her loyal clientele and developing vast relationships and connections throughout the community. Friends and clients are a central part of Nathalie’s world but her heart always belongs to the two beautiful daughters she has raised and is preparing to send the first off to college. Her main focus as a parent has been being a role model to her girls for hard work, kindness and positivity.
Although being a hairstylist has been a truly rewarding part of her life, Nathalie knew she could not endure the physical challenges forever and was recommended to the profession of real estate. This change has given her an exciting new opportunity to serve others and, with joining Z. Jones Real Estate a year ago, she strives to utilize her years of relationship building and attention to customers’ individual needs to continue her pursuit of changing the lives of everyone she works with.
Nathalie’s wakes up every day to pursue her mission in life: to be a woman of tender compassion, soulful wisdom, uncompromising integrity and relentlessly commitment to her family, friends and faith.
