Coupled with her dynamic personality and animated delivery, she is a national spokesperson and expert in interpreting numerous components of non-verbal communication. Her clients include executive suite coaching, motivational team building at large corporations and national key-note speaking forums<' organizers said.

Dr. Van Natten holds multiple degrees and certifications - culminating with a doctorate in educational leadership. Dr. Van Natten was awarded a Japan Fulbright Scholarship, is published in the Journal of Leadership Education and her first book, Image Scrimmage, targets the power of body language and leadership. She is “The Body Language Dr.” Dr. Van Natten has been featured multiple times in Inc. Magazine for her expertise in nonverbal communication and leadership. Recently, she was highlighted in the Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and Business Management Daily for her expertise on eyes, smiles and tone of voice in leadership.
