Nathalie-ArseneaultNathalie Arseneault

Anyone who knows Nathalie today would tell you she’s smart, outgoing, strong, loving and happy!   And she would say all of this is true – today.  There was a time, in a not so distant past, when she was just a fade copy of herself, when she was without goals, without spark and drive, but mostly, without any self-esteem.   She was operating on survival mode.  Then one day, she learned a valuable lesson about happiness that allowed her to completely change her life around.  This lesson was so valuable she decided it was worth sharing.  At first, she did with friends, colleagues and family, and more recently, she is doing so publically.

When she is not sharing her experiences, Nathalie loves to spend quality family time with her three year old and her husband.  She volunteers as a community producer and host for Ma vie…mon assiette, a French series broadcasted on the French Rogers channel in Ottawa.  She is a regular guest on Nat en parle!  a weekly talk show also airing on Rogers and she works as a professional communicator  with the federal government.
