My name is Natalie Gonsalves. I am graduate from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Health Promotion and Behavioral Science with a specialization in Education and Community Health and Wellness. I am also a Certified Health Education Specialist. My passion revolves around helping create equity in communities that experience social and economic disparities that affect all aspects of ones health. I spend my days trying to balance being a mother, a great partner, thriving within my field of study and my balancing own sanity. This blog is a combination of various opinions, factual information, ideas and experiences. I am open to discussion and want to share these thoughts and experiences with anyone who is willing to listen. I believe I can learn more than I could possibly teach so comments and emails are always welcome. I hope you enjoy the journey into my mind and soul. Thanks for reading.
