Natalie Nascenzi is a copywriter, poet, and author from Rhode Island. At 13, she started working at a local seafood restaurant, spending 8+ years working for the family owned establishment in the kitchen and front of the house. During that time, she also bartended and waitressed at three other restaurants to save up enough to move to NYC. Her greatest skills achieved? The perfectly balanced six plate carry and the queen of "I forgot to sweep my section, but at least I filled the salts." She moved to the city in 2017 to pursue a career in advertising. After a journey through weight loss, anxiety, depression, Natalie found herself again through words. Since then, she made an impression on New York City's open mic community, has been featured across the world in anthologies and independent publications, and published two poetry collections, Out of Chaos and The Aftermath of Unrest.
