“I will be 52 this summer. I want to have ‘fun’, I want to live, I want to live healthy. My priorities have completely changed and today, [l’important] Is to be happy, well and happy. “
In addition to her magazine “Simplement bien avec Nathalie”, in which she participated in every step, Natalie Simard will soon provide meetings with specialists and other inspiring people thanks to the group that will be created on the Facebook page “La Semaine”, a magazine that writes her column every week.
