Natalie focuses on helping those in debt work towards financial independence. Born in El Salvador and raised in Inglewood, CA during the LA Riots, she quickly understood that the lack of higher education opportunities combined with financial illiteracy was rampant in her community, and stifling people’s access to basic human rights. She started investing in real estate at 24 and began advocating for financial literacy and female empowerment for equal pay. Her challenges dealing with student debt led to Natalie suffering from depression. This experience has influenced her to advocate for mental and financial health to be taught in all schools and work environments. You can follow Natalie on Instagram.
