Natalie Pickett’s life purpose is to help children and families fulfill their God given destiny while enjoying life through education, spiritual awareness and good mental and physical health.
Having challenges herself as a young girl with friendships, managing emotions and a poor self image, Natalie felt compelled to help little ladies & young women in these areas. From this strong passion, her book, S.E.M.P.L.Y. 4 Girlz© was inspired by God and written for girls all around the world.
Natalie devotes a lot of her time pouring into the lives of children. She serves as the Director of the Kidz Zone Ministry along with her husband at Life Change AME Church in Columbia, MD. She is also an enthusiastic and passionate elementary school teacher and a licensed Zumba® instructor.
Natalie holds a B.S. degree in Family Studies from the University of Maryland at College Park, and a Masters Degree in Special Education from Johns Hopkins University. Currently, she is working on her Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Liberty University. Natalie is also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She and her husband Reggie Pickett work together in ministry and have 3 awesome sons: Reginald, Reese and Ramsey.
In her downtime, Natalie enjoys reading, shopping, trying new restaurants, and having fun with her family.
