Using her journey from happy ‘bubble’ – great pharmaceutical career, beautiful home in a calm and peaceful suburb, 2 daughters and pregnant with her third with her live-in partner – to utter horror and destruction in one seemingly normal Friday afternoon. In a 9 long minute attack, fighting for her life whilst protecting her precious unborn baby, Natalie was stabbed 24 times with a 12 inch carving knife in broad daylight in a pre-mediated murder attempt. The horror to unfold after was almost too much to bear. But determined to never give in, Natalie stood strong, rebuilt life and followed her true passion to help others lead a more positive life. A true testament to the fact you can come back from ANYTHING and make life better.
