Nathalie Barreto

Level 2 Intern

Nathalie is a beach native who traded in the white sands and emerald waters of Destin, Florida, to live in a city and pursue a career she was passionate about. After realizing the political science and law school route wasn’t the right fit for her, Nathalie embarked on pursuing her passion and graduated in 2014 with a degree in public relations from the University of Mississippi. #HottyToddy

Prior to joining Obsidian, Nathalie interned for Visit South Walton in South Walton Beach, Florida, where she gained experience in a fast-paced marketing- and communication-style environment. She co-founded a nonprofit organization, The Honeycomb Group based in San Antonio, Texas, where she gained exposure to event planning and social media strategies. Most recently, she served as a consultant for One Body by AJ in Oxford, Mississippi, handling advertising, marketing and social media. Nathalie is also in the process of writing her first motivational book for teenagers and young adults focused on maintaining a positive lifestyle and keeping faith in yourself and the process of getting there through positive action and thinking.

With a friendly personality, Nathalie loves meeting new people and making them feel comfortable right away. Her approach? Make them laugh uncontrollably! Her obsessions include flipping through Elle and Veranda magazines, inspiration boards, rose macaroons, pink peonies, Pure Barre, traveling and her 3-year-old Bichon, Annabella Grace (Belle-y Grace), who Nathalie refers to as her “little redneck, Southern Belle wannabe,” since she will wear dresses (no bows) and loves to roll around in leaves after a bath.
