A few years ago, Natala was at the end of her rope. She was on almost 15 medications daily, had out of control Type 2 Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, issues with nerve damage, and was morbidly obese. She was just over 30 years old. She decided to take her life back by becoming plant-strong. She has lost over 200 pounds, got off of all of her medications and now has great health numbers. She became passionate about plant-strong nutrition, recieved her Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition through Cornell University and is currently working on her degree in nutritional science. Natala plays the violin and has a background in music therapy. She and her husband traveled for 4 years around the country, and now are settled down in Oakland, CA.
