"I have a real passion for entertainment and know from years of personal experience, how important it is to be seen and show exactly what you can do. Being noticed, solid performance and helping people create great memories is everything. It doesn't matter how long it takes, or how many set backs you have; you have to keep knocking on those doors until you get to where you dreamed of being!"

A majority of her experience has lead her to meet some major house hold names, either in the wings or actually performing with, and on the same stage! Natalie is now also a dance coach for many Devon based youth and theatre organisations.

Whilst continuing with her theatre work, Natalie takes care of researching new entertainment, venues and businesses who may not be aware of us.
