Natalee Wright's Profile

About

Born and raised near Fort Wayne, Indiana, I have always been an active participant in the arts; visual, theatrical, and vocal. I even went abroad and was the lead soloist for a Catholic mass. I moved to Florida with my family at the age of 16 and focused primarily on visual arts. Even though I was very involved in the arts, I signed up for an eight year stint in the Florida Army National Guard as a Track Vehicle Repairer for a chance at something new. My military career was cut short by four years after I sustained a back injury in Aberdeen, MD. With this new start, I decided to educate myself. I currently hold a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology, previously worked with abused and deliquent children, then with senior citizens and people with disabilities at a non-profit organization.

Born and raised near Fort Wayne, Indiana, I have always been an active participant in the arts; visual, theatrical, and vocal. I even went abroad and was the lead soloist for a Catholic mass. I moved to Florida with my family at the age of 16 and focused primarily on visual arts. Even though I was very involved in the arts, I signed up for an eight year stint in the Florida Army National Guard as a Track Vehicle Repairer for a chance at something new. My military career was cut short by four years after I sustained a back injury in Aberdeen, MD. With this new start, I decided to educate myself. I currently hold a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology, previously worked with abused and deliquent children, then with senior citizens and people with disabilities at a non-profit organization. However, my husband I recently sold our home in Florida to relocate to the farm that I grew up at in Columbia City, IN where I am now focusing only on Black Willow Soaps Gift Shoppe.

I created Black Willow Soaps after years of giving gift baskets full of homemade soaps, bath salts, and candles to my family members. They all seemed to like my products. So, I decided to set up shop. Since beginning my shop, I have expanded from soaps and candles to crochet items and will hopefully be adding homespun yarn soon.

I had previously tried to sell artwork on Etsy, but failed. I thought that it might be a good outlet for my homemade products. So I started on this adventure. I needed a name. The black willow tree is one that I wanted to have planted in my yard. However, living in Florida (at the time), that seemed impossible. Instead, I decided to name my shop after the tree. Now I get to see trees that I like everyday, from the stamps that I put on my homemade boxes to the avatar that is used on my Etsy profile. Additionally, now that I have relocated back to Indiana, I am able to see willow trees all over the place!
