Natalie Spencer, MT-BC, NMT, has had the privilege of working with Avow as a board-certified music therapist for a little over 2 years. Completing her Bachelors of Music in Music Therapy at Queens University of Charlotte, she then moved down to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, in 2013 where she completed her internship with a hospice company there. Three years later, having gained experience in serving patients and families on hospice care and partnering with the Children’s Bereavement Center of Miami, Natalie moved to Naples to provide music therapy to hospice patients, community seniors, and children and families on the west coast. She considers it a great blessing to use music to help promote comfort, healing, and family connection in Southwest Florida. Currently at Avow, Natalie manages a team of complementary therapists, including art, manual lymph drainage, massage, reiki, and music therapists, and the children’s services department, with clinical social workers providing care to children who have experienced a loss. When she’s not at work, Natalie loves exploring food and restaurants in Naples, spending quality time with friends, and enjoying sunsets with her fiancé.
