We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalia Sanabria and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Natalia, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
Yees! our favorite quote is “Where the heart is, the mind works best.” Not only I believe this quote is real, I live and feel it every day, even in my career. I know there is a strong connection between the heart and the mind and they work best hand in hand. Every time I do something related with Ambrosia, and I am really passionate about it, I have a better work flow and also ideas come to reality better than I had imagined. When I get too much into my head, then I get a lot of anxiety and it interferes with my creativity. I love what I do, and when I state this affirmation there is a switch in my mind that helps me push through it all.
What I like about this phrase, is its simplicity and complexity at the same time. Everybody can understand it, but reaching that state of being is really hard. It is very challenging to know exactly where your heart is because sometimes, we start something and we give it our all, but deep inside we feel our heart is not really there.
As for me, the other half of Ambrosia, it is very noticeable when Natalia is having fun with an order and it makes it worth the wait knowing that she is going to turn out a master piece of chocolate.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I work full time as a microbiologist. What sets my apart from other is my creativity and my passion about things I love. I am excited of the future and proud about every single decision I have made so far to live the life I dream. It was not easy to get where I am, there have been some challenges but I am happy I have been able to overcome them. I have learned to let thing flow and follow life´s path without forcing anything.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We live in West Palm Beach, Florida where a trip to the beach is a must. You can´t also miss a photo in Worth Avenue, having dinner at the City Place and dancing late at night at Clematis street.
