A trailblazer in business, Nataly Tormey was named one of the 2018 Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence at age 32. She has built her business success from very humble beginnings and is currently taking her business leadership to the next level.

Nataly began her business journey as a bankrupt single mum, with not even a laptop to her name. Over the last few years, she has celebrated the launch of several successful ventures including The Parentmedic Movement, a social enterprise focused on making first aid training accessible to every parent and carer in the world. This year, Nataly launched Boardroom Rebels Society, a community created to champion successful women on a mission who come from a range of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Nataly is proud to be a self-confessed bogan leader who invites like-minded women to join her campaign, encouraging and empowering others to build their very own bogan empire. At a young age, Nataly has developed a big dream of helping people and becoming a famous person with great achievements. She told her Oma that one day there would be a statue of her because of all the people she has helped. Raised by a single mum and two sisters, Nataly had encountered a lot of obstacles while growing up, including financial difficulties and exposure to drugs and alcohol. She later found herself living in an abusive relationship.

Now, Nataly is a devoted mum to two beautiful girls and shares the love and support of her partner. She has always been there for her family during hard times, and she is learning to manage her own anxiety and starting to understand her depression. She has completed a nursing degree and is currently studying a postgraduate in psychology with a passion for consumer psychology.  Through her business and life, Nataly says she has always stayed true to herself, living with no boundaries and striving for more. She still has her eyes firmly set on her statue being built, and also hopes to continuously connect with and inspire like-minded woman across Australia with her personal experiences, life knowledge and wisdom.
