Dr. Natalya Sharpe has always loved people and so her desire for helping others started at a young age.
Born in Miami Florida she was raised in a diverse family. Having a Cuban mother and an African American father, it allowed her to connect with people in a very unique way and her desire to help others increased as she saw the language barrier her family endured on a daily basis.
She always found herself fascinated with the intelligence of the human body so she would volunteer at the University of Miami medical center orthopedic department starting at the age of 12.
When she started college at Bethune-Cookman University it was very easy for her to find herself as a Biology Pre-med major. It was here she learned that she did not want to just be a regular doctor that prescribed medications all day. She wanted to get to the patients before they needed the medication. It was as a junior in college where she fell in love with chiropractic care or as she describes it, Preventative Medicine.
She then went on to Palmer School of chiropractic to further her education and continue her path to serve and help others. She graduated in 2010 and was on the dean’s list for all 3 years. She then found herself volunteering for a mission trip to Vietnam where she treated over 300 patients. This deepened her empathy and gave her the drive and motivation to service all mankind.
