Natalie Lovett has over twenty years of experience in marketing, sales and consulting. She held a number of executive positions and worked at Facebook’s Australian office for over seven years before retiring from the corporate life to her home office to spend more time with her family and to follow her passion.
She swiftly established Lexie’s Village Publishing, an organisation devoted to producing literature that fosters an open environment of awareness, education and acceptance of fertility issues and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Lexie's Village Publishing creates educational content on egg and sperm donation, surrogacy and embryo donation and resources for donor children, their parents and anyone interested in the spectrum of family structures.
Natalie is the proud sole parent to her egg and sperm donor daughter, Lexie. They share their Sydney home with a puppy named Kizmo.
