Well Hello there!! I’m Natalia, Founder and Chief of Happiness here at Level Up Louisvile.  I’m originally from Colombia but in the last 15 years I have fallen deeply in love with the culture, food and most importantly, the people of Louisville.  My background is in business management and marketing but my passion is for loving and investing in people and community.  I started my entrepreneurial journey as a crazy Colombian lady with a camera (ChocolateBox Photography), followed by founding Story Louisville ( a community based co-working space in Butchertown) and now Level Up Louisville is the latest addition to the family.  I'm wife to an incredibly smart man,and mom to two of the most amazing humans walking this earth, a happy person, a sucky writer, a good friend and a big foodie. I never skip dessert and don’t exercise often,  I like hot weather but fall and winter are my favorite seasons.  I try to live every day at a time and I believe mindfulness, respect, kindness and compassion are the keys to happiness.

As a mom I want to be able to show my children that happiness lives within each of us and it is available at all times if you are mindful, kind and generous with yourself and others.  As a business owner my goal is to give back to the community in as many ways as possible, we partner with several local charities throughout the year to volunteer our time as well as hosting events that benefit them directly and we have pledged to donate up to 5% of our yearly revenue to local charities.  We are based in Louisville, but we hope to bring our classes to more communities soon! Thanks again for taking the time to meet us and I’m excited to hear from you!
