“Workflow Your Way to Six-Figures & Beyond with Asana”
I’m Natalie – Project Manager turned Director of Operations Certification Mentor. After spending 15 years in corporate at a Fortune 150 company, I dove into entrepreneurship leveraging my project management certification and skills for high-level influencers in the online and small business worlds.
As much as I love streamlining and executing projects for 7-figure business owners, I’m definitely a Change-the-World kind of gal. And what I saw in that world was a ton of super capable women whose skill sets were not leveraged and whose natural tendency toward leadership wasn’t acknowledged. With my background, experience, and contacts, I knew I could change that for the women who are ready for the kind of mentorship I offer. I am the creator of the Director of Operations certification and host of the Action. Accountability. Acceleration (A-Team) Program for business owners who are in the scaling phase of business.
At the end of the day, I equip female bosses to managing projects, processes and people for themselves or in other's businesses.
I am a no-nonsense, sports-loving, working mama who takes no excuses and will push you to be your best self everyday…and then give you the highest of high fives with every win!
