nataliebioNatalie Chassaigne Kurtzman, Co-Founder & Editor
Born and raised in Boston, Natalie adores every corner of this city. It is too difficult for her to pick a favorite neighborhood, but you can often find her practicing her chopstick skills at Avana Sushi, sipping a French 75 at The Taj, or aimlessly strolling the cobblestoned streets of Back Bay. By day, she manages business development and online marketing for a PR firm. In her free time, she loves playing on Castle Island with her Portuguese Water Dog, Weber, traveling off the beaten path, and meeting new people. In addition to writing for The Boston Day Book, she authors a lifestyle blog, wishful nals, focused on celebrations, travels and small details of everyday life.
